The Lake of Scars - Documentary

In a corner of Victoria exists a link to an ancient culture. A place of astounding beauty and rare archaeological and environmental significance, it is being degraded on an annual basis. As the clock ticks, an unlikely partnership could see it saved for future generations. The Lake of Scars is as much a portrait of a hidden facet of history and environment as it is a musing on what reconciliation can look like in Australia. While exploring the beautiful, mysterious scarred trees, middens and stone scatters along these wetlands, we meet the people, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, who are working against the clock, to preserve and promote what they can. With organic relics at its heart, the film examines the preservation of culture and environment as our protagonists fight for scarred trees to be preserved, for middens and stone scatters to be protected and recognised, for environmental flows of water to be allowed into the seasonal lake, and for a ‘keeping place’ to be built.
