ABOUT 'OUR AFRICAN ROOTS':
On 26 January 1788, ten men of African descent stepped off the ships of the First Fleet and were set to work building the modern nation of Australia. They were the first of hundreds of African convicts sent to these shores.

On a journey back to the multicultural origins of modern Australia, African migrant Santilla Chingaipe rips up the monocultural myths of Australia’s white foundation narratives and colours in our nation’s post-colonial history by revealing the stories of the black Africans who left an indelible mark on this country.

Although their achievements have largely been overlooked or forgotten, they became bushrangers, feminists, freedom fighters, war heroes and sports stars, and they played a pivotal role in some of the most decisive events in Australian history.

'Our African Roots' writes these forgotten African men and women back into the nation’s history books, and reveals how Australia’s shifting attitudes to race came to shape our national identity.

DISTRIBUTION:
'Our African Roots' will be broadcasted on national television via SBS.

ABOUT CHEMICAL MEDIA:
Chemical Media is an independent production company specialising in documentaries and factual entertainment. Its founders have made hundreds of hours of programming for broadcasters such as the ABC, SBS, Discovery Channel, National Geographic and Al Jazeera English.

Along the way we’ve produced programming on everything from art and adventure to science and contemporary social issues, handled location shoots from Alaska to Yunnan, been hailed by prime ministers, denounced as people-smugglers, and frequently missed the last bus home.

With Australian roots and a global outlook, we’ve forged strategic film finance relationships with partners around the world and tailored unique content for brands such as Singapore Airlines, Emirates and Tourism Malaysia.

Focusing on strong storytelling and intelligent entertainment, the Chemical team has created factual documentaries, break-through social media campaigns, award-winning VR documentaries, and occasionally even impressed our mums.

Chemical Media is part-owned by Lonely Planet founder Tony Wheeler.
