About the work


This film was created at Jirndawurrunha, a sacred site on Yindjibarndi Country in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The filmmakers are grateful to the Yindjibarndi people for their generous support of this project. We respectfully acknowledge and thank the traditional custodians of the land, the Yindjibarndi people, and their elders past, present and future.
