Where the Green Ants Dream
- 1 hr 40 min
What happens when two cultures with vastly different spiritual beliefs and ideologies over the use of the land we live on collide? Is a person or group inherently wrong if simply because they have a different outlook on the world than us? These questions and more are raised in the dramatic 1984 film 'Where The Green Ants Dream.' The story told, based on the now famous trial Milirrpum v Nabalco Pty Ltd, depicts the clash of two worlds when a wealthy mining company runs into a group of Aboriginal natives who are adamantly opposed to the company disturbing the ground they wish to mine, due to Aboriginal lore that disturbing the dwellings and dreams of the green ants living there will cause the end of humanity as we know it.
