Summary Warning: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers should be aware that this content may contain images or names of people who have since passed away.
At the top end of Australia is the jewel of the country's national parks and the home of the Gagadju people. Bill Neidjie was the traditional custodian of this land - a role passed down to him through countless generations. In 1979 he gave the land to the people of Australia. Kakadu Man is his story. Translated through the use of actors and puppet characters, and scenes of Kakadu, the story unfolds a sensitive and often humorous portrait, weaving together the figurative and the abstract, the past and the present. Scenes of Kakadu National Park's birds and animals, gorges, rivers, billabongs and the people who live there are combined with scenes about the way they tell the stories of the sacred Aboriginal spirits.
