Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander creatives are responsible for some of Australia's best cinema.
Actors like Deborah Mailman, Jamie Gulpilil and Mark Coles Smith not only bring their unique talents to the screen, but improve diversity in character roles and tropes - one that cannot be found in films abroad. So why are international film industries culling them from the movie's promotional material?
While Australian film posters will often put Indigenous actors at the forefront of the image, in many cases, their international counterparts are covering their faces, placing them in the background or removing them all together.
