John Pilger's new epic film, Utopia, had its premiere in the urban heart of indigenous Australia, in the middle of Sydney, on January 17, 2014. The crowd filled the equivalent of two football pitches. Indigenous and non-indigenous Australians came from all over the country to hear the call for a renewed struggle for justice and freedom for Australia's first people.

Utopia, already released and broadcast in the United Kingdom, is named by the London Film Review as one of the five best films of the year.

Utopia will be screened January 21-23 and on Australia Day, January 26, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. For information visit mca.com.au.

On January 23, it will be screened at Murdoch University in Perth. Contact Robbert Eggington at This email address is being protected from spambots.
