Event Details

This is a free public screening however, all donations no matter the size will be truly appreciated and help NSWRC continue our work in Reconciliation.

 

Come join us in the gardens of Tranby for this critically acclaimed, powerful and important documentary, The Tall Man. You'll be able to feast on popcorn and sit under the stars for this community event.

 

In 2004, Cameron Doomadgee, an Aboriginal man, was arrested for drunkenly swearing at police Sgt. Chris Hurley and died less than an hour after being arrested. An eyewitness account by another prisoner contradicts Hurley's later testimony that Doomadgee's fatal injuries were sustained in an accidental fall. Cameron Doomadgee's death triggered a full-scale riot on the Palm Island where this event took place.

The Tall Man is an important documentary, shedding a new light on Doomadgee's tragic death and the events that followed.

 

Come along and witness this powerful and important film under the stars at Tranby.
