The documentary chosen is ‘Connection to Country’ which is a powerful film that explores the relationship that exists between Indigenous people and our land and charts our battle to get our unique cultural heritage recognised, conserved and celebrated.
Australia is home to the world’s oldest continuous culture. A culture whose sacred sites are older than any of the world’s most famous monuments. Stonehenge, the Pyramids and the Great Wall of China are comparatively recent compared to the rock art sites in Australia and yet Aboriginal elders from the Pilbara region of Western Australia, have to fight like mad to preserve their unique heritage from the ravages of Australia’s booming mining industry.
This is a touching documentary that will leave us inspired to continue advocacy and reconciliation.
