A clip from Mike Willesee’s The Hunting Party (1990) shows David Gulpilil and others in a swamp hunting for goanna. David is a Yolngu man of the Mandhalpuyngu, speech of the Djinba language. The group convince Willesee to enter the water on the premise of there being no crocodiles. Gulpilil in voice-over tells us that in fact, there was a crocodile present, and that Willesee was none the wiser. Present day, David shows us his impoverished living conditions. David talks to camera about sharing his culture and country with Australia and the rest of the world, and introduces the concept of 'one red blood’. Summary by Romaine Moreton.
