Abri Vossos Olhos is a Dutch-Australian co-produced feature film. After five years of structured creative development, it employs docu-fiction methodologies in the Kalbarri & Northampton regions of Western Australia.

Maitland Schnaars, a journalist and Noongar man, travels with several colleagues to the remote town of Kalbarri in Western Australia to report on the reseeding of an abalone stock on a pastoral lease owned by an old woman who is described in ever more contradictory ways by locals.
