A documentary by BIGhART

ALBERT NAMATJIRA - One family... five generations... fighting for justice.

An extraordinary first-hand account of the international battle to reclaim the artwork and heritage of one of Australia's most important Indigenous figures: Albert Namatjira.

Namatjira was one of those rare artists who changed the course of history. But he was never fully accepted by white Australia, and after being wrongfully imprisoned, he died despondent and broken. Then, in 1983, the Government sold the rights to his work to a dealer – despite Namatjira having left his art to his wife and children. Namatjira Project documents their fight to have his legacy returned to its rightful home.

“Namatjira wasn’t just a key figure in our history, he changed our history.” Hetti Perkins
