Screen Space – On Sacred Ground

On Sacred Ground is screening as part of the Desert River Sea: Portraits of the Kimberley exhibition.

Politically censored by the Federal government for several years after its production, the film explores the importance of Country to Aboriginal people and investigates the well-publicised Aboriginal struggle to stop mining at Noonkanbah Station, an Aboriginal owned cattle station in the Kimberley, during the late 1970s. On Sacred Ground captures a particular moment in time for the Kimberley, however, echoes contemporary political negotiations.
