Summary Filmmaker Warwick Thornton investigates our relationship to the Southern Cross, in this fun and thought-provoking ride through Australia's cultural and political landscape. He takes us on a journey through this five-star constellation's astronomical, colonial and Indigenous history to the present day. For Aboriginal people, the meaning of this heavenly body is deeply spiritual. By contrast, the star-adorned Eureka Flag was emblematic of protest and defiance, a quality that caused it to be adopted by activists, and lately, the darker side of Australian nationalism
