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?

Freaking awesome… is the adjective which I choose to type the first word of this review. As I left the theater I was not only spellbound, but I was also sulking about the fact that the movie had ended.

One of the greatest films ever made. Please do not watch it on TV because Sally Goldrick tuned the editing in such a precise way that simply pausing for a commercial break can literally affect the way your brain processes this masterpiece.

You know... sometimes when you watch a film... in the first few minutes, it is clear that the film is going to be special.
