First Contact

Documentary
1 season availableAustralia

More than six out of ten who call Australia home have had little or no contact with Aboriginal people. The chasm and disconnect between the First Australians and the rest of the nation is vast.
First Contact shines a light on this deep divide by taking a group of six non-Indigenous people, from different walks of life and with strong and varied opinions, and immersing them into Aboriginal Australia for the first time, revealing Aboriginal Australia in all its beauty, hope, culture, history, tradition and tragedy.
