CONTACT is constructed around one of the most extraordinary filmed and photographed moments in Australian history: the day in 1964 when a group of 20 Martu women and children walk out from the nomadic existence of millennia in the Western Desert into a new universe of European modernity.
Remarkably, this film footage and extensive portfolio of photographs has not been seen in full by a television audience. Just as remarkable is that participants from both the Aboriginal and European sides are alive to tell their story, one of the last 'first contact' experiences in Australia.
