'Jandamarra's War is the story of an Australian Aboriginal man who should be as famous as Ned Kelly. In 1894, Jandamarra led a rebellion against invading pastoralists in defence of his people's ancient land and culture. Until his death in brutal retribution, this formidable Bunuba warrior waged a 3-year guerrilla war, earning him both the admiration of his people and international notoriety.'

The Circuit : Series 22009single work film/TV Aboriginal lawyer Drew Ellis continues his journey through the chaotic, challenging world of the Kimberley Court, a circuit that takes a magistrate and an entourage of court officers and lawyers on a regular five-day, 2000-kilometre round trip to dispense justice to the dusty, remote communities of northern Western Australia. (Screen Australia record)
'The Circuit is set in the Kimberley region of North Western Australia. It is a place of two seasons; the wet and the dusty dry. Known for its beauty, vastness and hardship, this region is a land rich in history for its traditional owners, but now sits within the confines of white ownership and white law. This is the home of The Circuit, the Magistrate's Court, which visits far-flung communities several days a month, bringing conveyor-belt justice dealt swiftly and fairly. Working between two worlds and juggling white law with traditional lore, means that justice can be a slippery beast.'
