THE FINAL QUARTER on 10 | Australia, it’s time to talk
In just one week, television audiences will get their chance to view the critically acclaimed film The Final Quarter when it premieres on Thursday, 18 July at 7.30pm on 10 and WIN Network.
Covering the last three years of the career of AFL champion Adam Goodes, the film has widely been described as a must-see by festival audiences, commentators and media and has sparked a national conversation about those final years of Goodes’ career and racism in this country.
Following the broadcast of The Final Quarter, 10 will take the lead on that important conversation in a special presentation hosted by Waleed Aly.
The Project: Final Quarter, Extra Time will air directly following the film and will include a panel of special guests. The important discussion will break it all down, consider what it means to Australia, why it matters and what we can do from here.
The Final Quarter is a Shark Island Productions film, distributed by Roadshow Films.
