Munda Nyuringu is a documentary “about the impact of the Kalgoorlie gold rush on the Aboriginal people in the region, [who] tell their own story of what happened to their people when they were invaded by tens of thousands of miners in the great Kalgoorlie gold rush in the 1890s. The film shows the living conditions of the survivors living in horrific poverty next to flourishing gold and nickel mines and uranium developments, and of the Maralinga tests and those who died there.” Ref: NFSA.
