This 22 minute documentary tells a parallel story of two generations of gay activism. Belonging explores the impact and legacy of LGBTQI+ campaigner Rodney Croome through the lens of a road trip across the state by young Tasmanian Sam Watson. Through archival footage and interviews with Sam and Rodney's families and friends, Belonging examines Tasmania's journey from a place of exclusion to inclusion, from prejudice to acceptance, from hatred to embrace.
