Where the Green Ants Dream (1984, Wo die grünen Ameisen träumen) by Werner Herzog



“I think it is important to say at the outset that this case before this High Court is not merely run by Aborigines dispossessed of their Ancestral land by the white man finding in the activity of the Ayers Mining Company a final assault in their believes. It is also a case that traces fundamental, moral questions of great complexity. We must here discover whether the Aboriginal plaintiffs hold in fact in common law a land rights title valid before 1788 tutelaries enacts by Governor Phillips, who by hoisting the flag claimed all of this vast continent for the British Crown.”
