Murray River Country discusses the water crisis from a unique perspective — the intimate stories of love and loss from the perspectives of Aboriginal people who know the inland rivers as their traditional country. These experiences bring a fresh narrative to contemporary water debates about living in the Murray-Darling Basin, where water is increasingly scarce, increasingly degraded, and of increasing economic value. The devastation of the Murray River demands that something fundamental change in our water philosophies if we are to open up space for dialogue that will create new possibilities for action.
