THE AUSTRALIAN DREAM is a feature documentary that uses the remarkable and inspirational story of AFL legend Adam Goodes as the prism through which to tell a deeper and more powerful story about race, identity and belonging.

Using his own personal experience of events as well as other key figures involved, the film follows Goodes' story, from his  AFL career highlights in the Sydney Swans, through to the racist tumult of the crowd-booing and subsequent #istandwithadam movement, and to his re-connection with his indigenous culture and the land as a way to heal. This is an important film which will inspire conversation around racism in sport and in general, in our culture.

Directed by Bafta-winner Daniel Gordon THE AUSTRALIAN DREAM also features appearances from Stan Grant, Nathan Buckley and Eddie Macguire.
