Rotary Club of Mansfield Inc invites you to a special screening of this documentary of a small indigenous community’s struggle to stay on country.

The film charts the remote Donydji community’s transition from their traditional nomadic life to the digital age, from the 1960s to the present day.

The film also tells the story of remarkable on-going cross-cultural co-operation, linking Rotary with Vietnam Vets and the community to assist with development of housing, schools and a workshop where the youth could learn skills to prepare them for employment.

The screening will commence with a Welcome to Country and a welcome drink at 6:30pm, followed by the film and then a Q and A with Special Guests Director Glenda Hambly and Producer Damien Guyula.
