The people affected by the British atomic weapons tests at Maralinga in the 1950's and 60's tell their stories.
The people affected by the British atomic weapons tests at Emu Fields and Maralinga in the 1950's and 60's remain haunted and deeply impacted. This short film extracts the memories of Aboriginal elders who experienced the fallout, alongside those of Australian atomic veterans who helped set up and execute those fateful and deadly tests. Their memories mix and correlate, as they gaze across the same desert landscape half a century later.
