WASH MY SOUL IN THE RIVERS FLOW SYNOPSIS
Wash my soul in the rivers flow is a feature documentary about the lives and love story of Ruby Hunter and Archie Roach, as told, in their own songs and spoken word stories in the 2004 concert Kura Tungar - Songs from the River. The country and river Hunter and Roach sing about is the Murray River, and Ngarrindjeri lands in South Australia - Hunter’s birthplace and early childhood home, before she was stolen. Seventeen years later, working with Archie Roach, filmmaker Philippa Bateman has crafted a film, which cinematically brings alive the emotional, spiritual and physical reality of Hunter’s country, her and Archie’s connection to it, as well as the pull of memory and the joy of coming homes.
