No Distance Between Us

How do contemporary First Nations people identify with a 20,000-year-old collection of fossilised footprints? No Distance Between Us (2018) reveals the Aboriginal spiritual connection to the largest human fossil trackway in the world. Told through the candid voices of the Traditional Custodians of the Willandra Lakes Region, the Mutthi Mutthi, Barkandji and Ngiyampaa people. With a lyrical soundtrack and shot on location in the extraordinary beauty of the Willandra Lakes Region World Heritage Area, this story captures the enduring spirit and insight of Australia's First Nations people.
