Clear message and great camerawork. I would have loved more in-depth personal or communal stories, to give the movie more of a story arch. In this form, it's a cinematic social pamphlet, rather than a film about the historic social interactions of white and aborigine culture.
White man's destructive, patronising and manipulative actions on another indigenous culture on another land. A sad story. I hope indigenous people in Australia can find a new way without losing their own culture.
