Summary While enjoying the benefits of the modern world, the Numurindi people of South East Arnhemland in the Northern Territory's Gulf of Carpentaria are still guided by the seasons and the stories of the Dreamtime. There are five distinct seasons. The viewer is led through the seasons, from the vast dried up flood plains where salt-water crocodiles perish due to lack of water, through to the spectacular thunderstorms, which isolate the communities due to the roads being cut off from the rising rivers. This program provides a unique insight into a way of life that is rarely accessible to western society. The spiritual connection between the Numurindi people and the land resonates throughout the documentary and gives the audience an evocative entrée to the world's oldest living culture.(In English and Nunggubuyu, English subtitles) -- website
