Mabo tells the story of Eddie Koiki Mabo (Jimi Bani), the Torres Strait Islander who left school at fifteen, yet spearheaded the High Court challenge that once and for all overthrew the notion of terra nullius.

Hand in hand with this David and Goliath legal battle is the tender love story of Koiki and Bonita (Deborah Mailman), the woman he met as a teenager, and loved through thirty years of marriage and the raising of ten children. It tells of the deep love and partnership that fuelled their fight for Australian law to recognise traditional land rights.

Although Koiki never lived to hear the High Courts decision that returned his land to him, the name Mabo has become known nationwide.

A very useful video to use for year 10 History students. It outlines the struggles of Mabo clearly and in an entertaining manner. The DVD is very useful in supplying information for detailed discussion on this major change achieved in Australia's history.
