Kanyini is a captivating story told by Bob Randall, an Aboriginal man from Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Central Austalia.

Kanyini follows the typical story-telling pattern of Aboriginal people. We see Bob sitting in an armchair telling us about his life. Theses images are blended with contemporary and historical material showing Aboriginal life around the Aboriginal settlement at Mutitjulu (from the name of the permanent water source at Uluru).

“Kanyini” is a Pitjantjatjara word encompassing spirituality, community, land and family.

Bob takes us on a journey to not only discover Aboriginal culture, but also to discover the shocking pain white culture has imposed on his life and the life of all other Aboriginal people.

Listening to our Aboriginal leaders and elders, we can learn a lot about the state of our nation. In this much-loved short film, Bob Randall tells us how he feels about living in accord with nature, and living in the moment, the beauty of life, and the cycles of life. Also included an interview with Bob Randall.
