You are invited to an exclusive private screening of the controversial new documentary...

In the lead up to the Universal Periodic Review of Papua New Guinea, the International Service for Human Rights and Media Stockade invite you to an exclusive documentary screening of The Opposition and discussion with director Hollie Fifer and Dr Kristian Lasslet from International State Crimes Initiative.

The Opposition asks how we can ethically build sustainable business in developing countries. View trailer.

In a David-and-Goliath battle over a slice of Papua New Guinea paradise, Joe Moses, leader of the Paga Hill Settlement, struggles to save his 3,000 people before they are evicted. Battling it out in the courts, Joe may find his community replaced with an international five-star hotel and marina.

In a recent twist, production company Media Stockade and director Hollie Fifer have been hit with a legal suit over the upcoming release of the film. On Thursday 14 April, a judge in the New South Wales Supreme Court in Sydney, Australia will decide if the case will go to trial. At stake is whether the film will be able to be released or not. Media Stockade stands by director Hollie Fifer who has conducted a piece of legitimate investigative reporting in the public interest.
