Maralinga Tjarutja: Behind the Documentary

Photographs of Filmmakers Larissa Behrendt & Darren Dale, and Host Elaine Crombie

Where: Online via the SAFC Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/safilmcorporation/posts/10157153862397120

When:

Wednesday, 29 July 2020, 6:00 PM

Join writer/director Larissa Behrendt and producer Darren Dale for an in-depth discussion of their new ABC documentary Maralinga Tjarutja.

Maralinga Tjarutja land, located in regional South Australia, was used for the British Nuclear Test Program between 1953 and 1963. The Maralinga Tjarutja people fought for the clean-up of contamination, for compensation and for the handback in 2009 of the Maralinga Village and Test Sites. They have since rebuilt traditional communities into vibrant, creative cultural communities that will ensure Maralinga Tjarutja custodianship of their lands into the future.

New SAFC supported ABC documentary Maralinga Tjarutja tells this story through the eyes of the Maralinga Tjarutja people, who have lived on their lands for over 60 thousand years. The documentary shines a fresh spotlight on what is both a story of deep tragedy and also incredible resilience, celebrating the people, their tenacious spirit and cultural strength through which they fight to retain their country.

Join writer/director Larissa Behrendt and producer Darren Dale in this interactive online Q&A session about the film, hosted by South Australian Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara actor, director, writer and singer/songwriter Elaine Crombie.

Maralinga Tjarutja is available to watch now via ABC iview.
