It’s the film that had the AFL world talking ahead of its premiere at The Sydney Film festival on 7 June. Now, 10 and WIN Network have revealed they will bring the confronting and powerful documentary The Final Quarter to television audiences.
Champion footballer and Indigenous leader Adam Goodes became a lightning rod for heated public debate and widespread media commentary that divided the nation during the final three years of his playing career.
He publicly called out racism, was named Australian of the Year, was accused of staging for free kicks, and performed an on-field war dance celebration.
The cheers became boos as football crowds turned on him.
Using only archival footage aired at the time, The Final Quarter film holds a mirror to Australia and is an opportunity to reconsider what happened on and off the football field.
The Final Quarter is a Shark Island Productions film and directed by award-winning filmmaker Ian Darling
