The Australian Dream

It speaks loudly and articulately, dropping the kind of truth bombs that smash your heart to pieces.

The Australian Dream’ echoes far beyond national boundaries.

Time Out

An urgent and engaging call to action


The Australian Dream follows the remarkable and inspirational story of AFL legend Adam Goodes as the prism through which to tell a deeper, more powerful story about race, identity, and belonging.

The Australian Dream powerfully draws on one athlete's extraordinary story to grapple with thorny questions facing the nation -- and much of the rest of the world.

The film examines Australian Aboriginal identity and racism in modern Australia, with the sustained booing of Goodes by spectators as a starting point.

It was written by award-winning journalist Stan Grant and directed by British director Daniel Gordon, and won the AACTA Award for best feature documentary in the 2019 series of the awards.
