The 15 minute film Yindyamarra Yambuwan: A film in Wiradjuri Language is now complete. The name has been changed to give it a clear identity.
Drawn from three years of conversations with Wiradjuri Elders, Yindyamarra bala Yambuwan – “Yindyamarra is everything” is the sentiment shared by every Wiradjuri Elder involved.
The film is centred on twenty poems in Wiradjuri language, with video from Wiradjuri country, exploring some of the many aspects of Yindyamarra. Yindyamarra is often translated as respect, but actually it describes the whole Wiradjuri way of Life.
It will premiere from Oct 2nd 2015 at MAMA SEE, as part of the Wiradjuri Ngurambanggu exhibition, at the new Murray Art Museum Albury, screenings every evening.
We are looking to have further test screenings with Wiradjuri communities throughout Wiradjuri country. The screenings so far have gone very well and have helped enormously.
