In 1964, authorities enter the Great Sandy Desert to clear the potential crash zone for a rocket test. In the process, they recorded their first contact with one of the last remaining groups of Indigenous Australians living traditionally in the desert.
Contact uses a combination of the original recordings and new material to revisit the event.
