The true story of the first Aboriginal filmmaker William "Bill" Onus, a truly heroic cultural and political figure who revived his peoples 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.
