Winter 2011: "The Intervention is yet another example of the appalling treatment the Aboriginal People of Australia have been subjected to in such a short period of time compared to thousands of years of survival. Sinem Saban and Rev. Dr Gondarra supported by the Yolngu people and cinematographer, Damien Curtis, have created a sensitive and realistic view of the plight of those who wish to live a more traditional life in their homelands and of those who appear to be dispossessed." Christine Waterer

Summer 2010: "Local resident and journalist, Jeff McMullen introduced "Our Generation", the film by Sinem Saban and Damien Curtis which we were there to see. The film explored in depth the Federal Government Intervention into Aboriginal Communities in the Northern Territory. Jeff had told us that the film’s producers were not having any success in having the film shown on government or commercial media outlets and they were having to screen it in local community halls to show the community at large just what was involved in the Intervention. It is basically a war on Aboriginal culture. The dispossession of the Aboriginal people is simply continuing in a new guise." Carol Gerrard

"Ich habe diesen Film hier aufgenommen, weil er exemplarisch steht für verschiedenste brennende Konflikte um indigene Gruppierungen und Regierungen oder Wirtschaftskonzernen weltweit. Hier prallt altes Wissen um einen harmonischen Umgang mit der Erde auf ein sehr junges Verhalten, das sich der Konsequenzen seines Handelns nicht bewusst ist. Es wird deutlich, wie die australische Regierung ungebrochen kolonialistisch weiteragiert. ..."
