Welcome to Country
The filmmakers would like to acknowledge that "Keeping Country" was produced on Aboriginal land and recognize the strength, resilience and capacity of Aboriginal people in this land.
A Cultural Landscape at Risk
The Kimberley, in Northwestern Australia is the size of California, with only 40,000 residents. Nowhere else on our planet have people lived as long within, and in balance with, a landscape. Now, a cultural legacy over 40,000 years old is at risk from mining and development.
"The Kimberley is the world's, and the world doesn't know it exists."
"Country means looking after each other - the plants, the animals, the rocks."
"Country is our common ground. Country is what connects us - everybody."
