After The Storm .   (Mumford & Sons)

And after the storm, I run and run as the rains come.  And I look up, I look up.  On my knees and out of luck, I look up.  Night has always pushed up day.  You must know life to see decay.  But I won’t rot, I won’t rot.  Not this mind and not this heart, I won’t rot.  And I took you by the hand.  And we stood tall.  And remembered our own land, what we stood for.  And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.  And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.  Get over your hill and see what you’ll find there. With grace in your heart, and flowers in your hair.  And now I cling to what I knew.  I saw exactly what was true.  But oh no more.  That’s why I hold with all I have.  That’s why I hold.

In this documentary, Aboriginal elder Bob Randall poignantly explains why his people are now struggling in a modern world and what needs to be done for them to move forward.   Bob has also written a book called ‘Songman – the story of an aboriginal elder’ published by ABC Books.   What’s also of interest is the story behind the making of Kanyini – of film maker Melanie Hogan.  The documentary and her story are on the Kanyini website and also in Issue 8 of Dumbo Feather magazine.
