Distant Noises and Other Voices – Five years ago Dean was diagnosed with schizo affective disorder, a mental illness characterised by recurring episodes of elevated or depressed mood, alternating with distortions of perception. A window into mental illness which still has an enormous stigma surrounding it.
Source to Sea – A documentary of 4 character stories: Frank, Simon, Hannah and the Brunswick River itself. Journey through mountains, cascade over waterfalls, bathe in alluring swimming holes, venture into mangrove forests, then escape to the vast salty ocean brine.
No Strangers – The plight of indigenous people explored through the images and commentary of acclaimed photographers, anthropologists and ethnographers, encouraging us to consider all traditions, languages and people in a new, enlightened context.
Nguras Wanggagu – The Pilbara’s summer is here and with it brings heat waves dancing across the sweeping plains. Join our Pilbara people as they go out on country. Their oneness is intimately captured on film.
Two Brothers Walking – In the heart of Australia the old people live their Ancestral values, beliefs and practices as handed down from the beginning. But this way of life hangs precariously in the balance. While many young people are confused about their identity others seek reconnection to the birthright denied their parents. The old people say, ‘If you are born in this country you are born from this Tjukurpa.’ This story tells the journeys of two men who come together as brothers to embrace story, ceremony and song, and call on all Australians to embrace the continuance of the worlds oldest culture.
