‘How much money in the world of artistic creative expression can be made from pain and suffering?' How many academic thesis, doctrines, and professorships can be awarded to research fellows for theorising trauma associated with genocide, racial oppression, brutality including self -injury and suicide without ever leaving the comfort of their university or political offices.
These people become arm chair human rights advocates’’
Robert Eggington ‘’ Hamburgers For Masterpieces’’ - March 2009
Following is a poster showing Dumbartung's involvement in the filming of Utopia during March 2013. Utopia was credited withing the top 3 documentarys of the year.
"Tonight is an extraordinary event. The film you are about to see -- which took me two years to make -- is being shown on Noongar land in a state that features prominently in the film. The planning of Utopia began soon after the infamous 'Intervention' in 2007 - I belived this demanded a documentary response. But the film received its greatest boost when I came to Perth early in 2010 and met Robert and Selina Eggington and saw the remarkable work of their healing centre at Dumbartung. Listening to Robert and Selina then, being guided by Robert through the Kyana gallery, I was reinforced in my belief that the uniqueness of Australia lies in the first nations of my homeland - and that justice for them ought to be the nation's highest priority. The film you are about to see is made in honour of them."

Also shown below are two photos from the Australian premiere screening at Redfern in NSW where Robert and Selina spoke to the film.
