Ablaze: Filmmakers Talk
Hear filmmakers Tiriki Onus and Alec Morgan talk about the making of "Ablaze", which won last year’s Victorian Premier's History Award. In their powerful feature documentary, Tiriki discovers a 70-year-old silent film reel that suggests his grandfather, high profile activist and successful entrepreneur Bill Onus, was the first Aboriginal filmmaker. As Tiriki travels across Australia and pieces together clues to the film reel’s origins, he discovers more about Bill, his fight for Aboriginal rights and the price he paid for speaking out. In this talk, the filmmakers will be discussing the making of "Ablaze", Bill Onus, the importance of Indigenous history and culture and their preservation and dissemination.
