About the film: Connection to Country
Read a review of the film by SBS:
“For a long time Tyson Mowarin had wanted to make a film that was able to demonstrate what connection to country really meant to Aboriginal people. Tired of seeing sacred sites decimated and deregistered by the Western Australian government, just over a year ago he decided to pick up the camera to try and show what many seemingly misunderstand.”
Proceeds: Split evenly between the Buurup Peninsula Protection Campaign and the Choir.
About the Burrup Peninsula Protection Campaign:
The Western Australian Pilbara is home to stunning evidence of Australia’s 40,000-year-old cultural heritage, much of which is threatened by the booming mining industry. This powerful film shows how people of the Pilbara are fighting back: documenting the rock art, recording sacred sites and battling to get their unique cultural heritage recognised, ‘digitised’ & celebrated.
How will it work?
Once you have purchased your ticket, you will be sent a link to the Zoom meeting. The choir will send you a password the day before the screening. You’ll need to click through to the meeting just before 7 pm on Thursday, June 25.
This is a licensed screening of the documentary. We are investigating the possibility of allowing viewing at other times.
