Remaking the Pathway

I have renewed the pathway so we can find our way forward. – Batumbil Burarrwanga

The documentary directed by Brigtte Ross follows Batumbil Burarrwanga and her sisters as they retrace a journey they made with their father as children.  Over 50 years later, the sisters are Elders of the Gumatj clan in North East Arnhem land. They relive their life experiences while retracing the path of sacred dogs along the coastline of the Arafura Sea. This documentary shows us how we can connect to the land as gurrutu (family) relations.
