Karrabing Film Collective
Established 2013 Northern Territory, Australia
the northwest coast of the Northern Territory
Karrabing Film Collective are an Indigenous media group who use filmmaking to interrogate the conditions of inequality for Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory and retain connections to land and their ancestors. The group features an intergenerational mix of more than thirty members of the Belyuen community, together with anthropologist, activist and gender studies professor Elizabeth Povinelli, who has worked with the community since 1984. Together they have sought to create a model for Indigenous filmmaking and activism, by bringing together different tribes and languages, conceiving works through an infrastructure of communal thinking and experimentation, and seamlessly blending fiction and documentary traditions.
