NSW: Message Sticks Festival: Free Films Sunday

NSW

The film sessions continue on Sunday starting with Emma Donovan & Kerrieanne Cox: Defining Moments. In this duet of doco screenings teamed up with a lively Q&A session, you will explore the defining moments of two of our best-loved artists, revealing them to be fascinating people whose lives were profoundly shaped by pivotal personal events.

The evening session kicks off with the multi-award-winning short film Apekathe, written and directed by Steven McGregor, joined in a Q&A at the end of the screening by Message Sticks Festival Artistic Director Rhoda Roberts. Meaning "fair skin" in the Arrente language, Apekathe examines how Aboriginal people are judged by their colour and why it's vital that white Australia is aware of the importance of indigenous identity.

From across the Tasman, 1988 movie Mauri was the first feature film to be written, directed and produced by a Maori woman, the late Merata Mita. Set in an obscure coastal town, it delves into a changing way of life, love and an ever-present cultural friction.

Emphasising that indigenous identity is a global issue, we bring you 2006 Canadian feature film Unnatural & Accidental, adapted from a work by Metis playwright Marie Clements, about a First Nations woman whose search for her aboriginal mother leads her into the darkest side of Vancouver's underbelly.
