A highly organised, well-connected and well-funded organisation wields hidden influence within Australian society and democracy. Using the discourse of religious freedom as a smokescreen, it makes LGBTIQ people the focus of fear, uncertainty and doubt for political leverage.
Its name, the Australian Christian Lobby, is a clever label because it implies the ACL represents Christians in Australia. But who does it really represent? And what are the effects on the health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ young people?
A Clever Label is an interactive immersive documentary experience that enables audiences to unearth hidden connections between anti-equality lobbyists, senior Australian politicians and international organisations. Unlike a traditional documentary with a fixed narrative and one-way communication, ACL’s presenter, Michela Ledwidge invites audiences to independently follow threads that intrigue them to form their own conclusions.
