Wayward Brewing Co's 'Punks 4 West Papua' Screening
Combine craft beer and a doco for a good punk cause.
It's craft beer for a punk cause this Wednesday, April 6 at Wayward Brewing Co. with a screening of Punks 4 West Papua. The documentary follows the touching story of the Australian punk scene's fight for the West Papuans, who've experienced genocide at the hands of the Indonesian government since the 1960s.
P4WP is an Australia wide movement organised by Jody Bartolo and his band, Diggers with Attitude. The film has already won the 2016 Documentary Feature Award of Merit at the IndieFest Film Festival in San Diego.
The tragic story has been kept quiet by the ban on journalists and foreign aid in the region, so the film aims to raise money and awareness for the Free West Papua cause. Director Ash Brennan will introduce the documentary on Wednesday and the ten dollar entry fee will aid this rockin' cause.
If you can't make the screening, you can rent or buy the film here. Proceeds from the rental of P4WP go to the United Liberation Movement for West Papua.
