Reconciliation Week Screening: Westwind: Djalu's Legacy

Djalu is an aging tribal elder, a yidaki master and custodian of an ancient dreaming. Feeling he has no-one to inherit his sacred and esoteric traditional songlines, Djalu seeks a solution.

He sets out to make a film, a film that will take him to the world and find a willing custodian for the next generation.

Part of our special Reconciliation Week program, screening six new films to commemorate the 10 years since the National Apology on 13 February 2008. Reconciliation Week is an annual event, bookended by two milestones in the reconciliation journey. 27 May marks the successful 1967 referendum, and 3 June is the anniversary of the High Court Mabo decision.
