Its about the importance of our ancestors and how their presence is often felt long after they have passed on. My nan & the Yandi : Amy Dhu is on of few remaining Indigenous women who can Yandy. This documentary is a tribute to her and the women who used this skill to keep their families fed during the decade long 1946 Pilbara Strike. George & the Ngurrungu : A story by Bunaba elder George Brooking and his strange encounter with a peculiar animal. Culture clash : Bill & Jaedon Smith are an active father & son team until Jaedon receives a old gamebox at a garage sale. Nothing can get between Jaedon and the gamebox until Bill realizes the gamebox is possessed by a spirit taking over his son's soul. Cousin Les steps in to help him out. What follows is a farce as Les brings 2bob the spiritual healing rapper to the house. In trying to rescue Jaedon, Les & 2bob end up being rescued themselves. Music men : Daniel & David are two musically gifted boys, much like their ancestors, also named Daniel & David. A doco about the similarities between the two generations and how their talents and traits live on through the younger generation.
