The Birth of White Australia: Peter Fitzsimons in Discussion
Noted author and media commentator Peter Fitzsimmons will lead a discussion on race relations in the last century in Australia, using Phil K Walsh’s film The Birth of White Australia (1928) as a starting point.
Phil K Walsh was most likely trying to emulate DW Griffith’s, Birth of a Nation (1915) with this crude, racist and often incoherent backwards narrative through Australian history.
Walsh particularly focuses on portraying the anti-Chinese Lambing Flat riots of 1860-61, with the action stopping for speeches about the need to keep Australia ‘white and British’.
