The mythical abode of bliss and pleasure, or the scene of massive destruction of the landscape for the purposes of the export woodchip industry?
The film takes us into the primordial beauty of the Australian bush and introduces us to Aboriginal narrator Benjamin Cruse. We're told simply, and without anger, of the relationship to the land and an aniministic religious view of the world where the deceased return to the landscape. The rock, the tree, the pool may be the spirit of a dead relative. The scenes of tranquility and history of ages are disturbed by the operations of a bulldozer tearing obscenely at felled trees.
