This Heaven archiveAn Australian Aboriginal family at the breaking point of oppression, loss, love and anger. Sometimes you need to push. Sissy Gordon's father died in custody at Mount Druitt Police Station. The cops got a fine, Sissy's family got ,000 and no-one is allowed to speak about it. Sissy is about to become a lawyer, but tonight, lawyers and the law are beside the point. Tonight the night is dirty and heavy, and the moon is swollen and bright. Everyone knows that on nights like this things happen. Here, the streets and parks of Mount Druitt are turned into a fierce public forum, where the essential matters of what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is bad are up for grabs. This Heaven poses the question: does doing nothing make you as complicit as the perpetrators???
