    Event description

    Join us for a double film screening creatively exploring the representation of First Nations peoples in colonial archives.

    WINHANGANHA (Wiradjuri language: Remember, know, think) is a feature length lyrical journey of archival footage and sound, poetry, and original composition. It is an examination of how archives and the legacies of collection affect First Nations people and wider Australia, told through the lens of acclaimed Wiradjuri artist, Jazz Money. Commissioned by the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA), WINHANGANHA was born from a desire to make sense of the archival inheritances that shape our present realities. Across a two-year period working closely with the NFSA collection, Jazz sifted through and reflected on the institution's extensive collections of works made by and about First Nations Australian people.

    Through film, television, audio and music recordings collected since the advent of these technologies, the film is a poem in five acts that attempts to acknowledge the horrors, joys and beauties held within the archive.

    100 TIKIs is a 44 minute film/video appropriation art piece, part of an ongoing installation of works on the intersection of tiki kitsch and indigenous sovereignty. 100 Tikis looks at Hollywood, colonialism, gender, militarism, and activism, through films, cartoons, songs, paintings, photographs, television shows, tourist ads, military propaganda, pornography, tiki bars, activist videos, home movies, and social media by Dan Taulapapa McMullin. 

    WINHANGANHA is presented by the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia.
