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:

Wrong Kind of Black
Dir: Catriona McKenzie/Year: 2018/Duration: 62min
Wrong Kind of Black, set in the 60s and 70s is based on experiences from the extraordinary life of Boori Monty Pryor, author and storyteller, who grew up in Townsville before moving to Melbourne to pursue modelling and DJing. From the cops and crocs of Queensland, to the disco dance floors of Melbourne, this is a hilarious, inspiring and heart breaking story of?an Aboriginal man who?stood against the tide of Australian racism, refusing to be labeled 'the wrong kind of black’.

Tickets are free but registration required.
