This work was filmed on Gunditjmara land and presented on Woi Wurrung land; I acknowledge the First Nation custodians of these lands, where sovereignty was never ceded. I pay respects to their ancestors and elders; past, present and emerging — and stand in solidarity with their ongoing resistance against colonisation.
