Night Time Go, 2017

Screening with introduction and conversation

Karrabing Film Collective, Night Time Go, 2017

On 19 September 1943, a group of Karrabing ancestors escaped from a war internment camp and walked over 300 kilometers back to their coastal homelands in Northern Australia. Night Time Go is an exploration of the settler state’s attempt to remove Indigenous people from their lands during the World War II using trucks, trains, and rifles, and the Karrabing ancestors refusing to be detained.

The film begins by closely referring to the actual historical details of this ancestral journey, but slowly turns to an alternative history in which the group inspires a general Indigenous insurrection, driving out settlers from the Top End of Australia. Mixing drama and humor, history and satire, Night Time Go pushes subaltern history beyond the bounds of settler propriety.
