UTOPIA is a rare and powerful insight into a secret Australia, and breaks what amounts to a national silence about the indigenous first people, the oldest, most enduring presence on Earth. UTOPIA reveals that apartheid is deep within Australia's past and present and that Aboriginal people are still living in abject poverty and Third World conditions, with a low life expectancy and disproportionately high rate of deaths in police custody. An epic film in its production, scope and revelations, UTOPIA explores Australia's suppressed colonial past and rapacious present.
