Lynette Wallworth returns to the Festival (her works Evolution of Fearlessness and Coral: Rekindling Venus played at the 2008 and 2013 Sundance Film Festivals respectively) with this stunning and deeply poetic live-action/animated documentary which she is presenting at the 2016 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Journey with the artist to a remote desert in western Australia to connect with indigenous leader Nyarri Morgan and the Martu tribe. Morgan recounts his profound first contact with Western culture, and the dramatic collision between his traditional world view and the cutting edge of modern technology.

This project was supported by a grant from Stories of Change, a project of Sundance Institute supported by the Skoll Foundation.
