Aboriginal Filmmakers

"I’m very much impressed by the incredible range and diversity of Indigenous film and video makers’ voices. We come from so many different nations, so many different geographic places, but also so many different experiences of what it is to be indigenous. Some of us are rooted in the land that we come from, rooted in our languages, rooted in family and community. But just as many of us are not."

Christine Welsh, interviewed in "The Indigenous Voice," episode 1 of "Storytellers in Motion."
