In 1996 the High Court granted native title rights to the Wik Peoples of Cape York. The “Wik Decision” should have been a catalyst for positive change, but instead sparked a national cultural and political fallout. With unique access to never-before-screened footage of a young Noel Pearson and Marcia Langton, this uncompromising feature documentary forensically explores the racism, fear mongering and political manoeuvring that occurred in the lead up to the case, and its aftermath. Told from the very personal Wik Peoples' perspective, Wik vs Queensland causes us to question who we are as a nation today.
