On the Waterfront endures as a powerful observation of both society and humanity, resonating for audiences as much today as when it was made in 1954.
An introduction to the film will be made by Phil Newman (CEO of Transparency International Australia) and Tricia Caswell (former union leader & ACTU Executive Member). Phil will highlight TI Australia's work and Tricia will reflect on her experience in the union movement.
TI Australia is the national chapter of Transparency International (TI), the global coalition against corruption, with a presence in over 100 countries.

On the Waterfront
“Conscience—that stuff can drive you nuts.” Immerse yourself in this epic tale of one man’s struggle (played by a young Marlon Brando) to set things right by speaking out against violence and corruption on the big screen.
Set against the Waterfront Crime Commission (1953), this film has everything: the Mob, murder, corruption, social justice and a love story. It swept the Academy Awards in the year of its release.
