‘“A deeply moving, evocative and beautiful insight into how a battle to preserve timeless Indigenous culture found hope in a remarkable act of black and white conciliation.”
– Paul Daley, author and Guardian journalist.
An ancient site, a ticking clock, and the unlikely allies calling for change.
The Lake of Scars is supported by The Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Council, Documentary Australia Foundation, Eucalypt Australia, and The Dja Dja Wurrung Corporation.
In a corner of Australia exists a place of astounding natural beauty, archaeological significance, and age-old culture. But the Indigenous scarred trees and artifacts found here are at risk – until an unlikely inter-generational partnership comes forth to save the site for future generations. The Lake of Scars tells a story of ally-ship, environmentalism and cultural rebirth; a picture of what reconciliation between Aboriginal and European Australians might look like. But is that idea harder than it seems?
Screening as a part of NAIDOC week celebrations.
