 UNDERMINED: TALES FROM THE KIMBERLEY
D. Nicholas D. Wrathall | 90mins | Rated M

Mega-mines and pastoral development threaten not only the Kimberley region’s vast and unspoiled beauty, but the Indigenous communities' sacred links to Country.
Follow Traditional Owners such as Bardi activist and musician Albert Wiggan and Yimardoowarra academic Dr Anne Poelina as they question what meaningful negotiation looks like, whilst industry pressure exposes the limits of land rights.   Award-winning documentarian Nicholas Wrathall (Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia) investigates the true cost of business in the world-famous region, now branded by the government “the future economic powerhouse of Australia” and what this means for First Nations and their cultural landscapes.   A portrait of those at the centre of the fight, Undermined follows the David-and-Goliath battle to preserve the Kimberley and the history, culture and community where it belongs.
