A film co-produced by Professor Ann McGrath has won the 2014 United Nations Association of Australia media award for promotion of Indigenous recognition.

Message from Mungo, produced by McGrath from the ANU Centre for Indigenous History and Andrew Pike from Ronin Films, took over seven years to make.

It tells the story of the surfacing of the remains of ‘Mungo Lady’ over forty years ago, and the interactions between scientists and the traditional custodians of the land.
