Sunset to Sunrise

Australia, 2006 (MIFF 2007, World Stories)

Director: Allan Collins

Sunset to Sunrise

In Sunset to Sunrise, Max is a senior Arrernte elder and traditional owner of the Alice Springs area. As the sun sinks below the horizon over Lila Creek, Max passes on his wisdom to his descendants by the campfire. They listen intently to his insights as the firelight reflects on the tall, elegant white gums.
