WINNER · AWGIE AWARD · AUSTRALIAN WRITER’S GUILD

Opera singer Tikiri Onus finds a suitcase of his grandfather’s, Bill Onus, a Yorta Yorta and Wiradjuri man from Victoria.

The seemingly lost photos and film reel that emerge piece together a portrait of an unsung hero that changed the course of Australian history, unearthing a cultural and political figure that sparked a civil rights movement in 1940s Australia.

Helping to shift the national attitude towards Aboriginal peoples, through film, performance, culture and against insurmountable odds, Bill Onus drove a passionate and extensive campaign for equal rights, and for the revival of Aboriginal culture in Australia.

Through rare archival footage mixed with new animation, Ablaze captures eye-witness accounts to tell the story of one of Australia’s great unsung heroes.
