Voiceover, Professor Irene Watson: “As Western Europeans you are so long in your disconnection from your own stories or laws of the land...At the critical time that we are now, globally, with climate change and the destruction of local ecosystems, when we think about what we have, to hold on to the future, to care for country, we have a Western European legal system that has no concept of those responsibilities.”

The landscapes recognisable from Albert Namatjira’s paintings are now connected by a pipeline to the Queensland export market. “Because we have a conventional mining company there already, that’s getting conventional gas, for sure there are other resources they want to get their hands on. It’s a threat to us, we’re not benefitting from it.”
