David Thom: Intergenerational Poverty

David's documentary takes an in depth and personal look at the causes and effect of intergenerational poverty in Aboriginal communities.

“It’s easy to look at Aboriginal communities and believe they’re lazy, don’t try and are at fault for their socio-economic situation. But how is it possible for an entire race, community and group of people to all be at fault for living in poverty?,” David said.

“The answer is they couldn’t. If a group of people is forced into poverty it will take them generations upon generations to climb back out again.

“Swimming against the stream of racism, intergenerational trauma, unemployment and failures in education. That’s what this documentary aims to look at.”
