Nunga Screen 2020
Formerly known as Black Screen, Nunga Screen features an entertaining program of independent films for all ages from emerging to the more established film-makers. Inspiring docos, compelling dramas, quirky animation, contemporary to traditional storytelling – this film event is dedicated to bringing communities together to share in culture. Taking place in NAIDOC Week this year, this free event will showcase 13 films across regional South Australia, from town halls, to cinemas to drive-ins. From animation in Nganu and Tjilbruke: A Tale of Two Dreaming Heroes to documentaries to controversy in Mulka Man, Adnyamathanha Elder Roy Coulthard, the last wood carver of the Flinders Ranges who crosses traditional conventions to teach women the art of Mulka wood carving, to courtroom drama in Language Matters to primary school children’s films, each Nunga Screen film has been chosen for its originality, humanity and skill. Across the films you will recognise well-known names that have paved the way for younger generations including Lillian and Elaine Crombie and Allan Sumner who share their wisdom and strength. Don’t miss FREE event Nunga Screen this year during NAIDOC Week. Inspired by the National Film & Sound Archive’s Black Screen program, Nunga (Aboriginal people of southern South Australia) Screen is presented by Country Arts SA and the ‘Give up Smokes for Good’ campaign from Drug and Alcohol Services of South Australia (DASSA), with support from the South Australian Film Corporation.
