FCAC and Moondani Balluk at VU present Blackscreen: The Flats

An Aboriginal Oral History of Mooroopna — Shepparton

The Flats is a documentary of the experiences and memories of Aboriginal people who, following the ‘Walk Off’ from the Cummeragunja Aboriginal Reserve in 1939, settled on the river flats of the Goulburn River on the outskirts of Mooroopna. Despite poverty and exclusion, the Yorta Yorta community created lives rich in family, music, sport and church.

The Flats provides vignettes of the lives of the people in the community that they created and the contribution of Aboriginal Australians in the economic, sporting and social life in the development of the Goulburn Valley.
