Single most important film on the Aboriginal political struggle in the last 50 years. ” Prof. Gary Foley, Victoria University

It’s fifty years since four young men sat under a beach umbrella in Canberra and called it the Tent Embassy.
Over the course of that momentous year film maker Alessandro Cavadini shot NINGLA-ANA with the people who were creating the embassy, the Aboriginal Medical service, the Legal Service and the National Black Theatre. It was an unforgettable year – and he made this unforgettable film.

Fifty years later the film was about to be lost forever until a crowd funding project financed the restoration of the original negative. Over the decades NINGLA-ANA has become an iconic record of that momentous year.
