This film tells the story of an extended Indigenous family who, faced with losing their public housing if they don’t find a missing relative, embark on a journey to find her only to wind up stranded out bush. As their parents argue about whether to save their government housing or their sacred landscape, a group of young Indigenous kids struggle to decide how the Dreaming makes sense in their contemporary lives.

The Karrabing's first film, 'Karrabing, Low Tide Turning' was selected for the prestigious Berlinale 2012 Shorts Competition as well as appearing in other international art centres and festivals.  'When the Dogs Talked' has been featured at the Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne; the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane; and The Oslo Academy of Fine Arts, Oslo, Norway, among other international venues.  

Directed by Northern Institute Adjunct, Professor Elizabeth Povinelli
