ASIO Files & The Australian Black Panthers Film

 A 'Real Stories' film with Professor Gary Foley - an Aboriginal Gumbainggir Activist and Academic Historian


'This documentary profiles high profile Aboriginal activist Gary Foley who was a member of the Black Power Movement and a leader in the fight for land rights and social justice. In each episode of this Award winning series a Person Of Interest is given their previously secret ASIO intellifence file, and asked to respond to the allegations it contains.

The four Persons Of Interest are Roger Milliss, Michael Hyde, Gary Foley and Frank Hardy. For forty years the Australian Intelligence & Security Organistion (ASIO) hunted spies and subversives. In the process it opened files on students, unionists, Aboriginal activists, and writers and as many as half a million other citizens. Persons Of Interest shows how things really happened in this dirty war against dissent.

Using actual files, recently discovered secret surveillance film and photographs, these films are the personal stories of lives under the microscope of Government surveillance. In light of the Snowden, NSA scandal and with ASIO possessing more power than ever - Persons Of Interest is a timely addition to the debate.'
