This ground-breaking short film, shown in 360-degree view, takes viewers on an immersive journey through the heart of Arabana country, Kati Thanda (Lake Eyre). Sit with Elders as they share knowledge of kutha (water), the giver of life. Hear the endangered Arabana language spoken. Meditate on the beauty of this country in this collaborative project between Ku Arts and Mobile Language Team. The land is changing. The only way forward is by sitting, listening and connecting with ancient songline.

‘Our communities are dispersed. We are no longer together in one place, on country. Now we can learn from Elders anywhere in the world using this 360-degree virtual reality technology.’ – Colleen Strangways, Director
