Heart Coming Home

In 1945 a teacher, Noel White, came to the Carrolup Native Settlement in the south-west of Western Australia. The children in his classroom were 'stolen', forcibly removed from their families by government, forbidden to speak their language or practice their culture, and confined at Carrolup Native Settlement with little or no contact with their families. In an attempt to connect with the children, Noel White would take the children for bush walks and then, on returning to the classroom, ask them to draw what they had seen in the bush. This opportunity to draw was the spark that created an astonishing collection of artworks that became internationally renowned and saw the beginning of a contemporary Noongar art movement. In 1950 Carrolup closed and a large collection of the children's art went missing after it was purchased by an international buyer. For decades academics and Elders searched for the collection. Would this lost treasure ever be found?

Purchased this for my grandson, as we had so many raving endorsements. This is film earned every one. It's unnecessary to extol every deserving aspect, as you can see by others' review; but suffice to say, we ALL enjoy the movie at least once daily!

This film really is everything the critics have been saying. Stupendous, visually spellbinding, brilliantly acted and very funny.
