‘The Films the Premier Dare Not See’: confronting video of Fitzroy before hipsters descended

25 October 2016

This footage was too much for the Victorian premier, in the 1940s. Our new, remastered video shows how Brotherhood founder, Father Gerard Tucker, used film to change the course of Melbourne and rid the inner city of its slums.

The Brotherhood of St Laurence (BSL) acknowledges and understands its obligations under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and recognises that all children and young people have the right to be treated with respect and care, and to be safe from all forms of abuse. BSL has a zero tolerance towards child abuse. Read the official statement signed by the Executive Director.
