A feature documentary of Aboriginal protest music. The Black Arm Band takes to the road with their songs of resistance and freedom. Filmed from the concert halls of the Sydney Opera House to remote Aboriginal communities of the Northern Territory, on show is the very best of Indigenous talent singing up the country’s troubled past through their stories of sorrow, anger and hope. This histo-documentary charts the Aboriginal protest movement from its inception in the late 70s to the present time. Beautifully filmed the movie not only informs and entertains but also enlightens the audience to the power of story-telling and the richness of indigenous culture. A must for all Australians and delight for lovers of cultural music, everywhere.
