Probably one of his lesser known but most important works.

A new privately funded documentary has brought together the British actor, Pete Postlethwaite, with the indigenous songwriter Archie Roach and Aboriginal leader Pat Dodson. They journey through Australia's outback and historical past in an effort to change people's perceptions and attitudes towards indigenous people.

The impetus for the film was the death of Bill Johnson's adopted Aboriginal son, Louis St John, who was murdered on his 19th birthday, allegedly "because he was black."
They tried for years to have it shown on free to air TV but because of it's controversial nature it has been knocked back.
