SYNOPSIS

Slipping between real life experiences and fiction retelling, these stories capture the difficult and haunting ordeals experienced by the central characters. Featuring a variety of animation techniques including sand and Plasticine stop motion, hand painting, and 2D and 3D computer animation alongside live action filming.

The Hunter 2011 dir. Marieka Walsh (7 mins)

"A boy goes missing in the icy wilderness, feared taken by wolves. A hunter undertakes a journey to find the boy, dead or alive.

As the hunter tracks the boy into the mountains, he discovers that his instincts can no longer be trusted. Here, far from civilisation he must make decisions that will forever change his relationship with the wilderness he has always feared.

Combining sand and stop motion creates a distinctive illustrative technique. Marieka Walsh manipulates her materials to create playful interactions between with light and shade to generate a depth of tone." National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra

Whirlpool 2016 dir. Kiefer Dann (13:04 mins)

"In 1923 a policeman, Constable McLeay and a police boy came to the Dampier Peninsula WA to arrest a Bardi man, John Boxer, who had been accused of stealing from white settlers. They took him in a dinghy across rough tidal waters to an island in search of the stolen property. The boat got taken under and the policeman drowned in a whirlpool. John Boxer recorded his story in Bardi in 1970 and this archival recording is used as the basis for a subtitled animation of the story."  Indigenous Community Television

The Killing of the Bilikin Brothers 2021 dir. Pilbara and Kimberley Aboriginal Media (PAKAM) (13:44 mins)

"Animation of an early contact story told by Tudor Ejai in Bardi language, recorded and transcribed by C.D.Metcalfe 1969, about the spearing of two white men at Cygnet Bay 29th May 1885. Produced with content funding support from the Community Broadcasting Foundation." Pilbara and Kimberley Aboriginal Media

Whale Song 2012 dir. Jonathan Daw, Jason Japaljarri Woods, Bill Hawkins, Leanna Shoveller, Henry Augustine, Maxwell Tasman, Joseph Brady, Joe Hogan & Curtis Taylor (3:29 mins)

"Laurel Angus tells a story from her two grandfathers, with animation. The weather was stormy and the people who lived on the foreshore were starving, because they couldn't go to sea to hunt...

Made in the animation workshop at the 14th Remote Indigenous Media Festival in Djarindjin, WA." Indigenous Community Television

The Long Yard 2000 dir. Sharon Lee Parker (4:12 mins)

"2D illustrated animation that morphs or cuts between events in two different stages of my father's life. The film moves back and forth in time and place, from a highway in the Northern Territory when my father is 65-years-old, to the Korean war where he is a young soldier. Images of buffalos, roads, guns, trees and my dad." Screen Australia

Delirium 1987 dir. Kathy Smith (4 mins)

"An attempt to document a psychosomatic experience using sound and image metamorphosis. Delirium is based on a true story about the death of six people traveling between Elliott and Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia." Kathy Smith

Slippages - Grace 2017 dir. Kathy Smith (10:22 mins)

"Slippages -Grace animation explores the final moments of an elderly woman’s existence and takes the viewer on a journey as her consciousness leaves her body at the point of death.

Set against the austere landscape of the Australian bushland, overlapping images of ever increasing clarity inform the Grace’s consciousness as she moves toward the end of her life. Proof of her existence through the many experiences, take on a personal symbolism; these include kittens, stolen houses, car rides, cockatoos and horses across multiple moments and environments." Kathy Smith
