Midawarr I Harvest film screenings
Friday 26 January 2018, 10am–4pm
Landscape artist John Wolseley and Yolngu elder Mulkun Wirrpanda describe how the food plants of north-east Arnhem Land sustain the wellbeing of Mulkun’s people, in two companion films.
Part 1: Painting as if through a veil (26 minutes)
Part 2: Living forms of the landscape (29 minutes)
The documentaries by Creative cowboy films will screen continuously during our Australia Day celebrations, alongside the Midawarr I Harvest exhibition.
Mulkun says, ‘This is the food we ate when I was young. Back then everywhere we looked there were old people. Strong and healthy – they lived with us for a long time.’ John further describes and supports this idea his collaboration with Mulkun.
