A necessary and beautiful film, Kanyini looks at the world’s oldest living culture in a way that’s never been seen before.
A listed traditional owner of Uluru and former Indigenous Person of the Year, Bob Randall acts as our guide to “Kanyini”, which he describes as the principle of connectedness through caring and responsibility that informs all aspects of Aboriginal life.
Bob poignantly explains why his people are now struggling in a modern world and what needs to be done for them to move forward. As bob explains, ‘The Earth is our Mother. That makes you and me brother and sister.”
A tale of Indigenous wisdom clashing against materialist notions of progress, Kanyini is not only a story of one man and his people but of the human race. It is also a story that is fundamental for understanding contemporary Australia, for only by knowing our past and our present can we dream of a future which includes everyone.
