On Sacred Ground Screening & Talk

Attend a special screening of the 1980 documentary On Sacred Ground with a keynote introduction by the film's original narrator Ribnga Green Snr.

Q&A at 6pm

Film at 6.30pm

Politically censored by the Federal government for several years after its production, the film explores the importance of Country to Aboriginal people and investigates the well-publicised Aboriginal struggle to stop mining at Noonkanbah Station, an Aboriginal owned cattle station in the Kimberley, during the late 1970s. On Sacred Ground captures a particular moment in time for the Kimberley, however, echoes contemporary political negotiations.

On Sacred Ground is also screening at AGWA from 9 Feb – 20 May 2019, as part of the Desert River Sea exhibition.
