“We live in Arnhem Land, in Northern Territory of Australia. For long time our people been wanting to show our culture to the world. We made that film, TEN CANOES. That was really beginning of it.

“So now here is our culture, our place, our history .... here is 12 CANOES. Different stories, 12 of them ... Creation, and First White Men, all different parts of our history ... The Swamp, and The Seasons, and Plants and Animals, all about where we live ... Kinship and Language and Nowadays, how we live today. And more than that.

“Everything put together is one story. It is us, like a painting of our story”.

Produced in collaboration with Molly Reynolds, Marshall Heald and the Ramingining community of north Arnhem Land.
