Voice From The Desert

About the film

Aboriginal singer Zaachariaha Fielding is taking the Australian music industry by storm; touring the nation and the world with his groundbreaking electro-soul band Electric Fields, who recently finished runner-up in the 2019 Eurovision: Australia Decides. After winning New Talent of the Year at the National Indigenous Music Awards, Zaachariaha returns to the tiny central desert community of Mimili to reveal the inspiration behind his unique music. Through intimate interviews with Zaachariaha and his family, we learn of the challenges he was forced to overcome as a child and his journey to music stardom as a proud member of the LGBTQ community.
