In 1997 I made Flooded dreams. It’s a documentary about a dispute over the protection of a large Indigenous burial site in south western New South Wales. It has a message of the need for tolerance and respect in times of conflict, which is increasingly important in these times when lies, deceit, lack of compassion, division, and hatred are being propagated. I hope you’ll watch it. It may be viewed at Flooded dreams.
The Barkindji people of south western New South Wales, Australia, for generations buried their dead on the shores of what is now Lake Victoria. This is the story of their struggle to protect the burials, and of the importance of land to human culture.
