Yukon Arts Centre

A powerful insight into the High Court’s decision to grant native title to the Wik people in 1996, and the dramatic political and cultural fallout that followed. With unique access to never-before screened archival footage, this uncompromising feature documentary forensically explores the racism, fearmongering and political manoeuvring that occurred in the lead up to the case, and its aftermath. Told from the very personal Wik Peoples’ perspective. 

Selected and introduced by guest curator, Kerry Barber. 

Presented with Support from Government of Yukon, Arts Fund.
