A desolate stretch of earth somewhere in Australia. Two tribes of First Peoples, the Wororas and the Riratjingus, preserve their ancient legends, songs and laws of creation here. Theirs is a struggle for a culture, stories and laws that are the result of 40,000 years of living in the desert. They come into conflict with the laws of modern Australia and the interests of a large company that works to mine uranium in one of their holy places, the place where the Green Ants dream.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
