Rate this:
This documentary portrays Australia's aborigines through the eyes of aboriginal women. Archival footage, excellent narration, and storytelling by the women themselves reveal the tribes' struggle for land rights, and the even greater struggle to retain traditional lifestyles and customs in a world that is fast disappearing. As the stories are told, ancient myths and legends including that of the Dreamtime (creation) are illuminated, and their importance in aboriginal culture as a source of identity is stressed. Customs kept alive through rituals and art forms are illustrated and explained in this fascinating portrait of life among Australia's original people.
