Video Title: That long way I been travelling

Video Description: Award-winning Papunya Tula Artist Patrick Tjungurrayi returns to the Canning Stock Route for the first time in 50 years to paint the story of his journey pout of the desert along the stock route. In 1959 a mining survey team landed in a helicopter at Well 40, where Patrick and his extended family were still living traditionally. The survey team brought strange new food and took Patrick's sick younger brother with them to Balgo for medical attention. Patrick, and eventually the rest of the family followed the stock route north to Balgo in search of the boy who forever after would become known as Helicopter Tjungurrayi. Patrick and the members of his family trace their journey through the sites recorded in his painting, telling remarkable, hilarious and sometimes tragic stories stories of first contact experiences between Aboriginal people and the non-Indigenous people who appeared unexpectedly in their country.
