A bold and provocative film by Warwick Thornton about the spiritual meaning of the Southern Cross constellation for Aboriginal people. Ever since colonisation, the Southern Cross has been claimed by many Australian groups. But for Aboriginal people the meaning of this heavenly body is deeply woven into the spiritual and practical lives of Aboriginal people. Warwick Thornton (director of SWEET COUNTRY) tackles this fiery subject head on, in a bold film which challenges us to consider the place of the Southern Cross in the Australian psyche. Imbued with Warwick’s cavalier spirit, this is a thought-provoking ride through Australia’s cultural and political landscape.
