Short film

When Christian Thompson was a child, he and his cousins would travel to a creek called "The Sixth Mile" in Barcaldine, central western Queensland. Today, Dr Christian Thompson AO is a world-renowned visual and performance artist, but the creek bed has since dried up, a victim of climate change and human intervention. Resurrecting The Sixth Mile as a shimmering panorama thriving with life, the scene is accompanied by Thompson’s lone voice singing in Bidjara (an Aboriginal language now considered extinct), weaving a profound story of loss, change and connection to country.
