Network releasing and ITV to release investigative documentary about Australia.

Network Releasing will distribute John Pilger’s upcoming documentary Utopia, an investigative piece about Australia’s indigenous people and its “suppressed colonial past.”

The film will have its premiere at the BFI South Bank on October 3.

Journalist, writer and BAFTA-winning filmmaker Pilger said: “Utopia will describe not only the uniqueness of the first Australians, but their trail of tears and betrayal and resistance – from one utopia to another”.

The Dartmouth Films production will air on ITV at the end of the year. Network will release in November.
