Date and Time: Tuesday, 4 June, 2019, 7pm
Venue: Spazju Kreattiv Cinema
Free Entrance: booking is required
In the obscure churches of remote Central Australia, a hidden musical legacy of ancient Aboriginal languages, sacred poetry and baroque music is being preserved by four generations of song women who make up the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir.
Against all odds and with the help of their charismatic conductor, the choir embarks on a historic tour of Germany to take back the hymns that were given to their great grandparents by German missionaries, now sung in their own Aboriginal languages. Together they share their music and stories of cultural survival, identity and cross-cultural collaboration.
Come on an adventure as the unlikeliest band on earth goes on tour to the other side of the world!
The screening is being organised by the Australian High Commission in relation to the exhibition ‘Yiwarra Kuju: The Canning Stock Route’ as part of the Spazju Kreattiv Programme 2018/2019.
Patrons are encouraged to book their free tickets prior the event so as to avoid disappointment. Tickets can also be obtained from the Spazju Kreattiv Reception on the day, depending on availability.
