Extinct - But Going Home is a documentary about the struggle of the last surviving members of an Aboriginal tribe in the Northern Territory of Australia. They battled for almost 10 years to be recognized as traditional owners of their land on the banks of the Daly River in the north west of the Territory.

It's a story involving many aspects of Aboriginal culture, history, law, hunting, dreaming stories, the land claim process, the segregation policy for part-Aboriginals, land management and Aboriginal ties to their sacred land.

This is a very powerful story suitable for all ages and races, and is easily understood and studied. It will help all to understand more about Aboriginal people and the land claim process.

Documentaire fascinant et extrêmement personnel, sur la lutte menée depuis dix ans par le peuple Kamu dans l'espoir de récupérer le titre de propriété de leurs terres au nord de l'Australie. Malgré le soutien d'autres tribus autochtones, les Kamu sont supposés être un peuple disparu, selon les documents historiques. Foster, l'une des dernières femmes Kamu, et son co-réalisateur, Mick Barker, dépeignent la double lutte de ce peuple pour se faire reconnaître légalement, et pour rétablir leur droit au titre de propriété de leur terre sacrée. Le vidéo se déroule en retraçant un parcours visuel émouvant et insturctif à travers divers aspects des cultures autochtones et de leur histoire, tout en dévoilant les détours des lois régissant les revendications territoriales et des politiques de ségrégation régissant la vie des métis en Australie.
