FDW Film Festival: Namarali
presented by Hougoumont Hotel & Warders Hotel
THURS 20 | 6:30pm
In Namarali, filmmaker Tim Mummery follows artist Donny (Yorna) Woolagoodja as he pursues his connections to culture and the Wandjina – creator beings – whose images can be seen in caves and rock ledges in the Kimberley.
The image of Namarali, an important Wandjina, was used to represent the people at the 2000 Olympic Ceremony. Now Yorna and others are returning to Country to get to know Namarali once again.
Join director Tim Mummery for a special Q&A after the film!
This specially curated and finely calibrated program explores culture, the built environment and the way people operate in it.
Built for the big screen, it explores the world of the individuals and societies that have created those environments and the forces that shape them. From renowned architects and designers to the power of economics and global politics, this series of international films dives deeply into the struggle between people and their environment, global forces that shape the way we live and the ongoing dilemma between the built and the natural.
With all but one title being Western Australian premieres, this series curated by Revelation Film Festival Director, Richard Sowada, includes stunning cinematic explorations of form, urgent social justice, meditative cultural observations and brilliantly told portraits.
These excellent works take audiences on a journey not just through architecture and design but ideas and advocacy that place us at the centre of contemporary thinking.
Behind each form and each element within each form, sits ideas and inspirations that synthesise great social, technological and political change.
At their core, lives inspiration and ambition that embrace maverick and outsider approaches that collide head-on with establishment, deliberately or otherwise.
