White Noise


White Noise questions the absence of First Nations peoples' presence in commercial television drama and asks our top directors, producers, writers, casting agents and commentators: Why are our commercial Australian soap operas so white? Is the absence of First Nations presence in commercial television drama a 'cultural terra nullius'?

This documentary complements Karen Nobes' research that was published as White Noise: Researching the Absence of First Nations Presence in Commercial Australian Television Drama.
