The Screen Guide

Lake Mungo, an ancient Pleistocene lake-bed in south-western New South Wales, is one of the world’s richest archaeological sites. The film focuses on the interface between the archaeologists and the Indigenous communities who identify with the land and with the human remains revealed at the site. This interface has often been deeply troubled and contentious, but within the conflict and its gradual resolution, lies a moving story of the progressive empowerment of the Indigenous custodians of the area.
