Whispering in our Hearts


An Aboriginal community from Australia's tropical north west tells the story of the execution of family members at Mowla Bluff in 1916 by police and local pastoralists.

They return to the area where the killings took place to ceremonially put to rest the spirits of their dead. As we travel back with them to Mowla Bluff, on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert, the film intertwines the oral account of tribal elders (whose parents were alive at the time of the events) with white archival records from the period.
