Di­rec­tor Sera Davies One of Aus­tralia’s most ac­claimed painters, Al­bert Na­matjira was the first Abo­rig­i­nal man to be granted cit­i­zen­ship – a cal­cu­lated move that meant his earn­ings would be sub­ject to tax. Na­matjira died a bro­ken man and to this day, his fam­ily does not re­ceive roy­al­ties be­cause the gov­ern­ment sold his copy­right. This doc­u­men­tary traces his rel­a­tives’ cam­paign to re­store that copy­right – a pro­ject that takes them all the way to Buck­ing­ham Palace.
