Twenty-eight days, six outspoken Aussies, one life-changing journey.
More than six out of every ten people 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.
The group will meet face-to-face with individuals, families and communities who define Aboriginal Australia today. The group will experience the workings of Indigenous and government organisations, private employers and other institutions that provide vital services to Aboriginal people.
First Contact reveals Aboriginal Australia and all its beauty, hope, culture, history, tradition and trauma. The six are tested in extraordinary situations, their beliefs are confronted and their emotions pushed to the limit.
