Statement

‘The Land Where The Crow Flies Backwards’ follows the Murray-Darling Basin, Australia’s longest river system. In a time of increasing uncertainty and change, the towns along the river, once considered the backbone of the Australian economy, are now former shadows of themselves.

The land is plagued by drought and society is in flux being threatened by a dwindling youth population and high unemployment while the local Indigenous community is still reeling from the ongoing scars of colonisation.

Along the river, the fragility of life is an everyday reality.
