Summary, etc.:
In the remote Northern Territory of Australia, the Galpu clan, an Aboriginal family led by renowned didgeridoo master craftsman, DJalu Gurruwiwi, struggles to maintain its ancestral traditions in the face of modern societal, economic, and environmental pressures. When the Galpu youth display little interest in maintaining the clan's legacy and the impact of the nearby Rio Tinto mine begins to take its toll, the clan elders must devise a strategy to preserve their way of life and cultural identity. Narrated by Emmy? Award winner and Academy Award? nominated actor & activist, James Cromwell, IN BETWEEN SONGS captures the global imperative to preserve a priceless culture and its musical legacy.
