Bardi Story

This film is the experience of two sisters who, as little girls, were removed from their country, Pender Bay on the Dampier Peninsula, and sent to Beagle Bay Mission in the early 1900s. When the girls were taken away, the freshwater that flows into the sea near Joordid stopped flowing. When the sisters finally returned, as women, in the 1980s the water started flowing again, welcoming them back to their country.
