This impassioned film tracks Australia's heated response as cheers turned to boos in the final years of AFL champion footballer Adam Goodes' career when he publicly called out racism.
The Indigenous leader and Sydney Swans player became a lightning rod for an intense public debate and widespread media commentary that divided the country. In the last three years of his career, Goodes was named Australian of the Year, accused of staging for free kicks, and performed an on-field war dance celebration. When the football crowds turned on him, the Brownlow medallist left his beloved game. Director Ian Darling's (Suzy and the Simple Man, SFF 2016) film is crafted using only archival footage aired at the time, which has been expertly edited: a technique seen most recently in documentaries such as Amy and Senna. The result is a powerful film that holds a mirror to Australia and suggests we reconsider what happened on and off the football field.

* Tickets to the special screening of The Final Quarter screening are priced at $10 and not included in subscription packages or Flexipasses.

The Final Quarter is inspiring, with a message that each of us will be remembered ultimately for two things: what we say and what we do,
