Incarceration Nation is harrowing and heartbreaking. It takes the viewer on a journey through the legislative and policy changes, both historic and contemporary, that create systemic incarceration and racial injustice. I commend all involved in the producing, filming, storytelling and making of this very powerful, truthful film.

The word ‘Country’ has different meanings for people who live in this diverse land. Country can drip with the patriotism of modern Australia; it can instil thoughts of a faraway land; it can conjure a picture of rural settings, beyond the boundaries of cities and towns.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, by necessity, are far more politically savvy than their fellow Australian citizens.
