Over the past year and a half, Melbourne has gone from being the most liveable to the most locked-down city in the world. The documentary Battleground Melbourne tells this story through the eyes of those who risked everything to save the city.
Other side of the story
The Australian government and the media have had ample opportunity to vent their distorted representation of reality. Battleground Melbourne is the answer, so that the truth comes to light for the whole world.
The Australian freedom fighters have been falsely accused, denounced as the lowest of the low, attacked, arrested and imprisoned. But they are not defeated. Driven by their boundless love for freedom and for their city, they continue the fight.
A lack of freedom has blanketed the world since the arrival of corona, but nowhere has the response been more extreme and repressive than in ‘free’ Melbourne. The city has been ravaged by politically motivated arrests, gross human rights violations and heavily armed police units patrolling the streets to enforce lockdowns.
Battleground Melbourne tells the story of the people who risked everything to keep their city beautiful. Interviews with activists and journalists are interspersed with raw footage of what happened on the streets of Melbourne. This documentary takes you along with the brave freedom fighters who rise up against a tyrannical government to stand up for their freedom and that of their children.
