In this session, keynote speaker Dr Romaine Moreton, Goernpil Bundjulung filmmaker and scholar, joined with Yorta Yorta Dja Dja Wurrung performer Lou Bennett to present a program of works that represent new artistic directions in Indigenous filmmaking and performance and raise crucial issues about Indigenous cultural heritage and revitalisation of language.
Dr Moreton screened her new short The Oysterman (2013). She also presented her “chapter” from Warwick Thornton’s new film The Darkside (2013) – an experimental anthology of Indigenous ghost stories.
best known for her work as a former member of the internationally acclaimed trio Tiddas and Artistic Director for Black Arm Band, will speak to her roles in the hugely successful Australian musical film The Sapphires (2012), as a musical performer on the film’s soundtrack, cultural consultant and translator of the film’s key Yorta Yorta song “Ngarra Burra Ferra.” Lou introduced excerpts from the film and speak to the historical and cultural importance of “Ngarra Burra Ferra” in the context of her PhD research on the relevance of Aboriginal language retrieval, reclamation and regeneration through the Arts to community health and well-being.
