MUFFest is pleased to present the award winning film NO WAY TO FORGET (1996) and THE CONVINCING GROUND (Part 1) (2007) documentary by estemmed filmmaker Richard J. Frankland, to be followed by a post-show Q&A.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are warned that the films may contain images and voices of people who have passed away.


Richard J. Frankland MA is one of Australia’s most experienced Aboriginal singer/songwriters, authors and film makers. Born in Melbourne, but raised mostly on the coast in south-west Victoria, Richard is a proud Gunditjmara man who has worked as a Soldier, Fisherman, and Field Officer during the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody.

His work with the Royal Commission led to his appearance as presenter in the award winning Australian documentary WHO KILLED MALCOLM SMITH?

Richard has written, directed and produced over fifty video, documentary and film projects including the award winning NO WAY TO FORGET, AFTER MABO, HARRY’S WAR and THE CONVINCING GROUND documentaries.


NO WAY TO FORGET (1996)

A short film that uses flashback to tell the story of Shane Francis’ (David Ngoombujarra) close encounters with the spirit and secular worlds during his work as a field officer for the Royal Commission into Deaths in Custody, haunted by the spirits of the past and tortured.

THE CONVINCING GROUND (2007)
This two-part documentary looks at the traditional, historic and contemporary stories associated with the massacre of up to 60 Aboriginal people by whalers at the Convincing Ground, near the coastal town of Portland, Victoria in the 1830s.

A ride through the sex- and drug-addled music business at the dawn of punk, disco, and hip-hop, the show is seen through the eyes of a record label president, Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale, who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path.
