Summary
The film rushes to Dhuway: an Australian diaspora and homecoming, a documentary which was directed and produced by Lew Griffiths. The rushes and accompanying documentation were donated to AIATSIS as a cultural gift in 2002. The film tells the story of the forced dispersal of the Yiidhuwarra people from their homelands in the Cape Melville area and their struggle to return. It follows tribunal proceedings during their 1993 claim for land rights over their traditional homelands after the passing of the Queensland Land Act, with emotional and heartbreaking hearings as three generations of loss, abuse and exploitation was recounted. The rushes consist of footage from the hearings, extended interviews with the people involved, landscape and atmospheric shots of the Cape Melville area, and archival material from other collecting institutions
