Australian Director Hollie Fifer's debut feature The Opposition will premiere for the opening night of the 10th Human Rights Arts & Film Festival.

The Opposition details the struggle of 3000 residents of the Paga Hill community in Papua New Guinea, who watched helplessly as police bulldozed their homes to make way for a luxury resort.
 
The gripping documentary is Australian director Hollie Fifer's debut feature, grappling with a subject so inflammatory it prompted legal disputes designed to block the films release.

The Opposition screens Thursday May 4 at ACMI. For more information about the Festival visit hraff.org.au.
