AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The 1970s were a time of radical social change - nowhere more so than in the newly politicised indigenous communities of Sydney. Creating a dance company to express themselves as thinking, feeling, sexual human beings, this was art as politics at its most raw. This fascinating program charts the growth and awakened awareness of a group of Aborigines as they discover themselves at the Black Theatre Arts and Culture Centre in Redfern. Winner of the documentary prize at the Sydney Film Festival of 1976, this is both an important historical document and an entertaining, informative overview of the importance of dance in the creation and regeneration of Aboriginal cultural identity.'
