Years in the making, Martin Thomas' document of the efforts to retrieve and properly bury stolen Indigenous remains from an American museum is a sensitive and contemplative portrayal of Arnhem Land cultural practices. As Will Cox finds, the film's narrative of remedying colonial wrongs is mirrored in its eschewal of a traditional documentary approach in favour of careful collaboration.
