Windjarrameru, The Stealing C*nt$

Karrabing Film Collective Australia 35 Min PG13 (Some Coarse Language) Southeast Asian Premiere

The discovery of cartons of beer unfolds a series of unlikely events that soon envelop all levels of the community.

The fortuitous discovery of beer cartons by a group of prankish youths stirs up a storm in the community of Belyuen in Australia’s Northern Territory. Embroiled in a community-wide contestation over land rights, the youths hide in private and ‘poisoned’ land to evade capture by the local police. They watch from afar the unravelling drama involving corrupt miners, the police and desperately concerned mothers.

Nũhũ Yãg Mũ Yõg Hãm: This Land Is Our Land!

Isael MAXAKALI, Sueli MAXAKALI, Carolina CANGUÇU, Roberto ROMERO Brazil 71 Min PG13 (Some Mature Content) Asian Premiere

A groundbreaking piece of Brazilian indigenous filmmaking where vivid testimonies defiantly stake claim to the land of their ancestors.

This Land Is Our Land! documents the diminishing boundaries of Maxakali territory in Brazil to advocate for the community’s right to the land. It demands justice for the illegal occupation and violent suppression of the indigenous way of life. Accompanied by indigenous songs, which narrate an intricate counter-history, the film also challenges Western epistemology’s claim to history.
