The Screen Guide

THEY CAME FOR THE GATHERING documents the first STORIES AND SONGS OF THE PEOPLE event held in Australia. In a time when issues such as reconciliation were (and still are) prevalent, this event resulted from the desire for a celebration of Australian Aboriginal culture as well as the desire to establish a cultural and educational exchange between Indigenous cultures from around the globe. It gave a stage for many Aboriginal artists to express their vision for a collective future through music.
