Australiyaniality aims to explore Australia's wellbeing. The key word liyan is a Yawuru word that relates to Aboriginal peoples' view of their wellbeing. It is about the way they feel about themselves and relationship with their community.

27 Artists have come together from different disciplines and cultural backgrounds to interrogate their own Australian identity and explore what a better Australian identity would look like. Can it be re-shaped? What is good? What needs to change? What is our collective liyan? How do we materialise all of this into real action?

For this special program Rev is screening some of the best and most challenging Australian works in produced in recent years—and we can hardly wait to bring them to big screen in the highest of fidelity.

For your viewing pleasure we present:

Jandamarra's War
Dir: Mitch Torres/Year: 2011/Duration: 55mins
Jandamarra's War is the story of an aboriginal Australian man who should be as famous as Ned Kelly. In 1894, Jandamarra led a rebellion against invading pastoralists in defence of his people’s ancient land and culture. Until his death in brutal retribution, this formidable Bunuba warrior waged a 3-year guerrilla war, earning him both the admiration of his people and international notoriety.

*Tickets are $10 plus booking fee.
