This documentary looks at a proud and sometimes difficult past, and also celebrates a bright and better future. The Gurindji story, immortalised in the Paul Kelly and Kev Carmody classic From Little Things Big Things Grow, is known by many Australians - but often only vaguely. This film sheds light on the pivotal historical events that led to Aboriginal Land Rights and forever changed our nation and the plight of Indigenous people to reclaim their land. It does so by revisiting the Gurindji community all these years later to hear from the descendants of Vincent Lingiari, and those who took a brave stand against power and privilege some 54 years ago.
