“The loss of a language is a lot more than just the loss of words. It is also the loss of identity, spirituality, cultural knowledge and values. Using the latest 3D animation technology Indigenous stories and languages come to life. Wunungu Awara records the past, preserves the present, and protects Indigenous languages and knowledge into the future.” Monash University
