The NFSA has completed a digital restoration of Witches, Faggots, Dykes and Poofters (One in Seven Collective, produced by Digby Duncan, 1980).

The documentary tells the story of the very first Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras on 24 June 1978, a protest march that ended in 53 arrests.

In this clip, one of 'the 78ers' describes what happened after her arrest on the night of the first Mardi Gras.
