Free NAIDOC Week Film Screening - We Don't Need a Map

This event has passed!

Join us in the Heath Ledger Theatre for a free NAIDOC Week screening of Yulubidyi – Until The End and We Don’t Need a Map

We Don’t Need a Map 2017 | M | 85mins | Documentary | Directed by Warwick Thornton

Presented by the State Theatre Centre and the Perth Cultural Centre Screen, join us in the Heath Ledger Theatre for this free screening of Warwick Thornton’s We Don’t Need a Map.

The Southern Cross is the most famous constellation in the southern hemisphere. Ever since colonisation it’s been claimed, appropriated and hotly contested for ownership. But for Aboriginal people the meaning of this heavenly body is deeply spiritual – and just about completely unknown.

For a start, the Southern Cross isn’t even a cross – it’s a totem that’s deeply woven into the spiritual and practical lives of Aboriginal people. One of Australia’s leading filmmakers, Warwick Thornton, tackles this fiery subject head-on in this bold, poetic essay-film. We Don’t Need a Map asks questions about where the Southern Cross sits in the Australian psyche.

Imbued with Warwick’s cavalier spirit, this is a fun and thought-provoking ride through Australia’s cultural and political landscape.

2.00 - 4.00pm Saturday, 13 July
