An emotive film by Warwick Thornton, director of Samson and Delilah and winner of this year's Camera d'Or in Cannes. Tnorala, in Central Australia, is a breathtaking land formation that rises above the windswept plains fringing the edge of the Western MacDonnell Ranges. "Ladies were dancing up in the Milky Way, and the baby fell down from a coolamon, fell down there, and created that meteorite crater." According to the stories handed down to senior storyteller, Mavis Malbunka, the distinctive crater-shaped landmark was formed during the Dreamtime, when a baby fell to earth from its resting place among the stars.
