In the 1950s, with no context, no understanding, Nyarri Morgan from the remote Pilbara region of the Western desert was moving through a trade route with his family when he witnessed an atomic test.

In this thought-provoking, intimate, virtual reality film experience, Nyarri, now a Martu Elder, reflects on his first contact with the West, and shares his perspective on the Martu way of caring for the planet.

Collisions, by acclaimed Australian artist and director Lynette Wallworth, whose installations Evolution of Fearlessness and Damavand Mountain were major events at Brighton Festival 2011, masterfully tells a story we urgently need to hear, and highlights our inability to imagine the unintended consequences of our actions.
