From the Ashes (Dean Gibson, 2009) tells the story of two young Indigenous cricketers following the footsteps of the first Aboriginal cricket team from country Victoria to England in 1868.
Over 25 minutes, From the Ashes documents the incredible achievement of the team – the first ever Australian international touring team in any sport. Their tale is told through the eyes of a young team of Indigenous cricketers who are looking to find the true spirit of Australian cricket, first planted by the Indigenous team.
It focuses on two players – Worrin Williams and Cameron Trask – and their journey to England in June 2009 as part of the Cricket Australia Indigenous XI team. Their journey is one of self-discovery, adventure, challenges and extraordinary Indigenous heritage. We will get to know them and their lives from their homes and families in Australia. They represent a new generation of Aboriginal men who want to succeed at the highest level in their sport and their lives.
Their story has rested since 1868, now it is time for it to rise from the ashes.
