In 2005 the Australian government selected areas in the Northern Territory as potential sites for a national nuclear waste storage facility with no consultation from the traditional owners. The community residing in Manuwangku have since engaged in protests and legal action to defend their land. This series is a portrayal of this community’s connection to their land and their resilience.
