Summary
"Known as "the last massacre", Coniston saw the brutal slaughter of 100 or more Aboriginal people across traditional lands of Central Australia from August 1928. The motive was to avenge the killing of dingo trapper Fred Brooks at the hands of a Warlpiri man, Bullfrog, who found Brooks taking liberties with his wife. But as the Walpiri people and their neighbours tell the story in Coniston, it's also the tragic tale of Australian contact history: dispossession by pastoralists and the struggle over resources in a drought-afflicted land. Using their acclaimed hybrid docu-drama approach to film-making, directors David Batty and Francis Jupurrurla Kelly allow Indigenous people to speak with authority about their own recent history and the deep shadow it cast over their country"--Container
