The Pilbara is one of Australia’s sparsest, most remote outback territories. The native peoples lived the same way of life for a thousand years – until they were confronted with the invasion of Western science and technology. Lynette Wallworth’s Collisions explores the impact of this meeting of vastly different cultures, through the story of Aboriginal elder Nyarri Nyarri Morgan and his encounter in the 1950s with nuclear technology. 360° filming and immersive sound allows viewers to take a virtual journey to the most remote outback, 1500 miles from the nearest city, and hear Morgan’s story.
