Art + soul.
DVD special features: Behind the scenes ; Original trailer. WARNING: Aboriginal & Torres Strait islander people are advised that this program contains images and voices of people who have passed away. Pride and prejudice -- Beauty and cruelty -- Love and longing. A diverse group of outstanding contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists reveal to pre-eminent curator Hetti Perkins how their art practice is driven by culture and heritage, political and personal preoccupations, dreams and imagination. Using the National Gallery of Australia's extraordinary Indigenous collection as the springboard, we travel with Hetti through cities and desert communities, museums and artists private spaces, to experience the diversity and beauty of the art, and to learn of its genesis.
