Finalist – Australia: Replenish the Earth – Voices from Aboriginal Australians

Project REARTH aims to promote social justice. By training young Aboriginal participants in film and photography, this project will document stories from the original custodians of Australian land, resulting in a locally produced and locally directed series of short films and photo-essays exploring issues including land rights, cultural preservation and connection to country . The project will create a “film-photo-blog” where local Aboriginal Australians of NSW and QLD will be at the centre of social change.
