Putuparri and the Rainmakers is a rare and emotional journey to meet the traditional rainmakers of Australia's Great Sandy Desert who have fought a 20 year battle to win back their traditional homeland. Spanning ten transformative years in the life of Tom 'Putuparri' Lawford, he navigates the deep chasm between his Western upbringing and his growing determination to fight for his family's homeland. A trip back to his grandparent's 'country' in the desert begins the process of cultural awakening. Putuparri is shocked to learn that the dreamtime myths are not just stories, and that there is a country called Kurtal and a snake spirit that is the subject of an elaborate rainmaking ritual. Putuparri is a man caught between two worlds: the deeply spiritual universe of his people's traditional culture and his life in modern society where he struggles with alcoholism and domestic violence. As he reconnects with his ancestral lands and learns about his traditional culture he begins to accept his future as a leader of his people and shoulders his responsibility to pass this knowledge onto the next generation. Set against the backdrop of their long fight to reclaim their traditional lands, Putuparri and the Rainmakers is an emotional, visually breathtaking story of love, hope, and the survival of Aboriginal law and culture against all odds.

8MMM (pronounced 8 Triple M), is a comedy about giving Aboriginal people a voice in a country with no ears and why, when all else fails - which it usually does - it's good to laugh. At the arse-end of the world, in the middle of nowhere, is Alice Springs - home to 8MMM Aboriginal Radio, the proud voice of the Blackfellas living here. It runs on the smell of an oily rag and the enthusiasm of its motley Indigenous crew. With meagre funding, the 8MMM team airs the day-to-day preoccupations of Alice Springs and its surrounds: housing, education, culture, money, alcohol and reconciliation.
