Filmed in the midlands plains of lutruwita (Tasmania) this is the story of an unusual alignment between a farmer, a scientist and the Tasmanian Aboriginal community. From a simple idea to run a science experiment emerged the story of a community returning an important cultural fire practice and reconnecting to lands where brutal dispossession took place. The collaboration benefits each in different ways but relies on a mutual trust heading into unchartered waters. The film highlights the importance of a traditional pakana practice that society is awakening to in an era of ecological collapse and global warming.

As an Aboriginal woman who has been denied recognition for most of her life, I feel I have started my healing journey. I can now stand up in that same sense of pride as I see in my Elders and remind myself ‘I am an Aboriginal woman, I am this Country and this Country is me’ – no one can ever take this from me - it is embedded in my soul and my psyche for ever.
