Mer Rrkwer Akert (Brooks Soak Country)| 24mins
Director: Lisa Watts | Producer: Lisa Watts & April Campbell
Focus Years: 2009 | Country: Australia
Traditional owners from Ti Tree, in the Northern Territory, go on a journey to visit Rrkwer (Brooks Soak) to respect their ancestors, to perform ceremony and to see how the country has changed. They haven’t been back for over forty years. This film shows Anmatyerr social responsibility toward caring for the land, animals and plants through their cultural and spiritual relation to water. The traditional owners find the land degraded and their water sources contaminated as a result of the open grazing management practices used by the local pastoralists, compounded by the absence of their own physical presence on traditional lands now occupied by pastoral stations.
