In a landmark documentary Kardiyalu Kangurnu, elders from different Central Australian communities share their stories of early contact with Kardiya (non-Indigenous people) and the food and animals they brought with them to the region. This period of first contact is the theme of this animated documentary, which tells the story of how the elders reacted to the sudden appearance of visitors and how it changed their lives, featuring the stories from elders Jerry Jangala Patrick, Tess Napaljarri Ross, Jack Jangala Cook and Cecil 'Crocodile' Japangardi Johnson. The animated documentary is beautifully and comically told by these elders from the region and comes to life by the clever use of inter-cutting between footage from interviews and images, and uses ground-breaking animations to tell their stories. It tells of how these elders live in the present day through live action interviews and how they were in their youth, living a life in the bush. Follow the conversation on twitter: #NITV
