10 picks up Adam Goodes film

10 has confirmed it will screen the Adam Goodes documentary The Final Quarter, which premiered at The Sydney Film Festival last week.

A date is yet to be confirmed.

Champion footballer and Indigenous leader Adam Goodes became a lightning rod for heated public debate and widespread media commentary that divided the nation during the final three years of his playing career.

He publicly called out racism, was named Australian of the Year, was accused of staging for free kicks, and performed an on-field war dance celebration.

The cheers became boos as football crowds turned on him.

Using only archival footage aired at the time, The Final Quarter film holds a mirror to Australia and is an opportunity to reconsider what happened on and off the football field.

The Final Quarter is a Shark Island Productions film and directed by award-winning film maker Ian Darling.
