This NAIDOC Week, the Perth Cultural Centre will be displaying the extraordinary breadth of Indigenous talent, from filmmakers, animators and artists across WA and Australia in a celebration of place and culture. Join us as part of the State Theatre Centre’s open day to celebrate NAIDOC Week.

The Perth Cultural Centre Screen and the State Theatre Centre have collaborated to present a free film screening of Warwick Thornton’s We Don’t Need a Map, showing alongside short film Yulubidyi—Until the End (2017), directed by Nathan Mewett and Curtis Taylor.

The Southern Cross is the most famous constellation in the southern hemisphere. Ever since colonisation it’s been claimed, appropriated and hotly contested for ownership. But for Aboriginal people the meaning of this heavenly body is deeply spiritual—and just about completely unknown. For a start, the Southern Cross isn’t even a cross—it’s a totem that’s deeply woven into the spiritual and practical lives of Aboriginal people.

One of Australia’s leading filmmakers, Warwick Thornton, tackles this fiery subject head-on in this bold, poetic essay-film. We Don’t Need a Map asks questions about where the Southern Cross sits in the Australian psyche. Imbued with Warwick’s cavalier spirit, this is a fun and thought-provoking ride through Australia’s cultural and political landscape.
