Synopsis

The aboriginal culture of Australia included a large number of tribes that inhabited the oceanic continent before the arrival of the white man. But is all that rich culture doomed? Are Australian aborigines destined to become extinct?

In this documentary one of the elders that preserve aboriginal culture will show the most important elements of a culture that struggles not to disappear.

We learn about the aboriginal rituals in which they contact the parallel world in which the gods, spirits and men live together. We learn the role of the digeridu, a musical instrument employed in these rituals. See how it is manufactured by the aboriginal musicians themselves, who will address the complex technique used to make it sound.

The cave paintings of Ubi Rock opened the door showing the spirituality of these villages that are sacred totems direct reference the natural world around them. Analyze the paintings today continue to make to represent their dreams and the importance of this painting.

Participate with them in making the famous boomerang and the banquet to which fishing leads a giant turtle. But the aboriginal community also show us the bitter side of life: the reserves in which its people seem destined to a slow extinction.
