This excerpt is taken from an interview included in a DVD collection of four films by Michael Edols, titled 'ASPECTS OF A LIFE: Working with Indigenous Australians'.

The complete interview is 40-minutes in length and was recorded in Canberra in 2011.

The 2-DVD set represents a significant and sustained body of work, produced over 16 years, recording the culture and history of Indigenous communities, especially in the Kimberleys, in the north-west of Western Australia.

Recruited by Elders from three tribal language groups - Worrora, Wunamble and Ngarinyin -- to collaborate with them in making films, Edols and the communities both recorded and reconstructed their culture, past and present, from pre-European contact (in LALAI DREAMTIME) to their present dislocated, mission-based lifestyle (in FLOATING).

The four films in the Collection have long been unavailable to the general public but are now released in digitally re-mastered form, with community approval:
