Special online film viewing – CONNECTION TO COUNTRY: The Pilbara
Posted: May 22nd, 2020
You are invited to a special online film event run by FILEF, which highlights the importance of Connection to Country in the Pilbara region.
CONNECTION TO COUNTRY: The Pilbara is about the fight of the Pilbara region Aboriginal people to protect their sacred sites.
The Burrup Peninsula (or Murujuga), in the Pilbara region, holds the largest concentration of rock art in the world, dating back over 50,000 years. It is an ancient landscape, so sacred that some parts shouldn’t be looked upon by anyone, except Traditional Owners.
In the film, Director Tyson Mowarin shows how he and the people of the Pilbara are fighting back to protect this sacred site. Traditional Owners are documenting the rock art, recording sacred sites and battling to get their unique cultural heritage recognised, recorded and celebrated.
The film will be accessible online, from 7pm on Thursday the 28th until 7pm on Saturday 30th of May 2020.
