1981, 43 Minutes.
Blekbala explores the lives and aspirations of Aboriginal people living in the Northern Territory - on small outstations, remote desert locations and in regional town - from Arnhem Land to Central Australia. It looks at a selection of Aboriginal-run businesses and enterprises: cattle stations; children’s education; community projects; sports and music.
Here is a film where the people tell their story. Throughout the film Aboriginal people express their thoughts and feelings about the issues of land rights and communications, including Indigenous radio in Alice Springs.
