Michael Ah Matt - 1960s Australian Basketball Documentary

In 1964 Michael Ah Matt stepped onto a basketball court in Tokyo, Japan and became the first Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander to compete at an Olympic Games.

His story is one of major national significance yet so much of it remains untold and unrecognised. We're trying to change that. In collaboration with the Ah Matt family we are running a fundraising campaign to finish the film through the Australian Cultural Fund - a platform where supporters can make tax deductible donations.

The campaign (along with a TEASER VIDEO developed with the support of Screen Australia) can be found at https://sforce.co/3fMFBfW

Please take a few minutes to watch the reel, learn a little bit about Australian basketball in the 1960s and, if it's within your means, help us bring Michael's story to the screen by donating. Every little bit helps. Thanks!

Incredible story that needs to be told and what better time. Hopefully will be supported by the local basketball community and wider community too. Would be great to see the likes of Patty Mills and Liz Cambage get behind this
