The afternoon concluded with The Making of Mabo, a panel discussion about the making of the Mabo movie. The panel featured Darren Dale, Gail Mabo, Jimi Bani, Noel Loos and Charles Passi. This was a fascinating look into how and where the film was made, and it was wonderful to see the locations around the Douglas campus featured so prominently in this film. The audience was treated to several clips from the film, and some behind the scenes information from the panel. The film premieres on the ABC on Sunday June 10th. Don't miss it!
