The Conversation called it "a powerful, personal portrait of Aboriginal activist and filmmaker Bill Onus".

The true story of the first Aboriginal filmmaker William “Bill” Onus, a truly heroic cultural and political figure who revived his people’s culture in the 1940s and ignited a civil rights movement that would, against enormous odds, change the course of history. Told by his grandson Tiriki through rare archival footage, state-of-the-art animation, vividly created digital motion graphics and eye-witness accounts, Ablaze is the compelling tale of how Bill and supporters brilliantly orchestrated their campaign for equality and outsmarted mighty forces seeking to destroy Indigenous cultures, languages, and communities.

Director: Alec Morgan, Tiriki Onus
