Our Generation

In light of what is happening all over the world and now on our backdoor ……mining is a growing industry that is trying to dis-empower us and destroy our land, health and culture.  Our Government has sold us out and also forcing Aboriginal people to give up their land once again.

Two very dedicated and amazing friends of Planet Corroboree, Sinem Saban and Damien Curtis spent 3 years filming “Our Generation” Documentary, an independent documentary film, that looks at the current state of Indigenous relations in Australia, home to the oldest living culture in the world.

Driven by the remote Yolngu peoples of Northeast Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, the film shines a light on the ongoing struggle of Aboriginal people to their culture, lands and basic human rights.

It is a call for understanding and action, for black and white Australians to come together to challenge the ongoing racism and assimilation that lie hidden in the “lucky country”.

It is also a cry for freedom, on the frontier between worlds, that resonates with the struggles of Indigenous peoples across the globe.

Planet Corroboree is passionately supportive towards these and other issues facing the Indigenous community daily. We believe everyone should watch this documentary and get their friends and family to watch it too! Spread the word and be the change you want to see in this beautiful world!

We stock “Our Generation” in our Gallery on Jonson St, Byron Bay and also in our online store. Click here to purchase your copy

January 26th is a day the majority of us living in mainstream Australia have grown up knowing as Australia Day, a day to celebrate this land being discovered by Captain Cook and it's beginning of colonialisation. For many it's just another excuse to party and the deeper meaning behind this day goes forgotten in personal satisfaction.
