Movie Review

BabaKiueria is a 1986 Australian satirical film on relations between Indigenous Australians and Australians of European descent.

The opening scene depicts a group of uniformed Indigenous Australians coming ashore in a small boat, watched by various European Australians engaged in typical beachside activities. The group from the boat approaches one of these and asks, "What do you call this place?", receiving the reply, "Er... 'Barbecue Area'."

The plot revolves around a role-reversal, whereby it is the Indigenous Australians who have invaded the land of stereotypical European Australians - the fictitious country of BabaKiueria. It presents many contemporary Aboriginal issues including white people a minority, the unequal treatment of whites by the police, white children are taken from their families or white people being moved because the government needs their home for "something". The paternalistic policies of the BabaKiueria government are defended by Wagwan, the Minister for White Affairs (Bob Maza).

The film won the 1987 United Nations Media Peace Prize.
