Australia, 1830. Edward Waterman (Phillip Hinton) and his family arrive in a remote part of Tasmania (known at the time as Van Diemen's Land). Waterman is pressured into helping British colonial forces carry out the Black Line – enforced removal of Aborigines from land near white settlements. Aboriginal woman Manganinnie (Mawuyul Yanthalwuy) survives a Black Line raid which claims the life of her husband, Meenopeekameena (Buruminy Dhamarrandji). During an innocent family outing in the wilderness, Waterman’s young daughter Joanna (Anna Ralph) becomes separated from her family leaving Manganinnie, who has been hiding in the area, to take Joanna into her care. Overcoming her initial mistrust of Manganinnie, Joanna joins her on a long journey in search of Manganinnie’s people.Winner of an AFI AWARD, Manganinnie captures the raw beauty of Tasmania's untouched wilderness whilst exploring a dark chapter in Australian history and delivers a richly textured tale of isolation and survival.Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this program may contain images or names of people who have since passed away.
