The principal subject of this most remarkable documentary film is the tension arising from the treatment of indigenous groups by scientists constructing one of the world’s largest radio telescopes for the investigation of deep space in the Karoo desert, South Africa.
From the perspective of a rock art researcher, the film is particularly interesting as it takes the audience on a journey illustrating the use of images as an information technology and the role they play in orality (…) and informants explain the underlying significance of imagery (…). Secondly, and perhaps most uniquely, the images give insights into the role sound plays in rock art.
