The Screen Guide

This songline runs from Croker Island to the Katherine region and takes in central western Arnhemland. It is the story of Emu as an old woman, her greed in not sharing food with her grand children, the way they tricked her out of necessity so that they could eat food themselves, her revenge on them by hurling a throwing stick at them, and the way it comes back to lodge in her throat, precipitating her change into an emu, and the transformations of her children into different birds.
