Thanks to ABC DVD we have 9 DVD copies of MABO to giveaway.
Twenty years after the historic Mabo decision, the moving life story of Eddie and Bonita Mabo comes to the screen in a feature directed by Rachel Perkins (Bran Nue Day, First Australians) and written by Sue Smith (Bastard Boys, Brides of Christ). As a young man Eddie ‘Koiko’ Mabo (Jimi Bani) is exiled from his Torres Strait Island home by the authorities. He takes a railroad job and soon learns the reality of being a blackfella in a whitefella’s world, including being banned from places frequented by white colleagues. One hot night, he spots a beautiful young woman and his world lights up. Bonita (Deborah Mailman) becomes his wife, the mother of his 10 children and the force that sustains him. The story of their enduring relationship, both tender and fierce, is set against the background of Eddie’s High Court challenge, which overthrew the fiction of terra nullius.
