Long time time reader of the Footy Almanac – and occasional contributor, Malcolm McKinnon (Social historian, documentary and multi-media maker), in conjunction with Jared Thomas, have been making a film over the past few years, exploring legacies of frontier violence. It examines whether the atrocities of the past can be healed through the act of truth telling, or if the rifts be widened.
