1967, 25 Minutes
Clive Williams was born in 1915, the son of an Aboriginal police tracker from Casino in northern New South Wales.
In this black and white film, Clive recalls his personal journey from being ‘a wanderer of the wastelands’ in the country towns and Aboriginal reserves of rural New South Wales and his unfulfilled desire to become initiated into traditional Aboriginal culture, to his move to Sydney in the early 1960s to further his children’s education and to give them the opportunities that he missed out on growing up in the bush.
