Watch Blackbird Short Film 01

Watch BLACKBIRD Short Film – Online Streaming & DVD

Since completing BLACKBIRD in 2015, there has been an overwhelming response to this short film exploring the history of Australia’s sugar slaves.

Sharing this story with the world, through local and international film festivals, community screenings, NITV and SBS OnDemand screenings has enabled discussion around the history of blackbirding – a history that has remained little-known for over 150 years.

It’s a great pleasure to share the ways in which you can watch BLACKBIRD via online streaming (for private viewing) or DVD (for educational use, community screenings & a variety of uses).
