Undermined : Tales from the Kimberley

Synopsis

Australia’s vast and unspoiled Kimberley region is under threat, with mining, pastoralism and irrigated agriculture driving an unprecedented land grab. UNDERMINED investigates the politics of an area now branded “the future economic powerhouse of Australia,” and what this means for our First People and their unique cultural landscapes. As pressure from industry exposes the limits of Indigenous land rights, what will remain of over 200 remote Aboriginal communities? We follow young leader Albert Wiggan, veteran cattleman Kevin Oscar and Senior Elder June Davis through David-and-Goliath battles to preserve their homelands, asking the question: for whose benefit is this development?

“"The film offers an unashamedly partisan view but it's also a powerfully persuasive one."”

Sandra Hall - Sydney Morning Herald & The Age

“"Undermined: Tales From The Kimberley is described as a David-and-Goliath battle as Indigenous people face off against development on their homelands, “in the final sprint to tap natural resources and plunder the land.””
