The significance of rain as a life-giving source as well as something to be respected is a dominant theme in Australian Aboriginal life, legend and religion. By following the journey of two young boys, Finding The lightning Man traces the regional stories across northern Australia of the origin and meaning of the storms that bring seasonal rains and life to the people, plants and animals. Reggie Sultan’s replication of the magnificent images that appear in the rock art have created a spell-binding story for young and old.
