A fundraiser presented and hosted by Save Wallum. Proceeds from this screening go directly to the daily cost of the Save Wallum Campaign.

Join Save Wallum for a hearty fundraising event that will bring us all together in celebration of the natural environment that we live, surf, fish, walk, work or holiday amongst called Brunswick Heads.

After 5 sold-out screenings in this region over the last 1½ years, Ḻuku Ngärra: The Law of the Land will be back to screen at Brunswick Picture House for this special event.

Winner of the Change Award at the Adelaide Film Festival and the Human Rights Award at the Montreal Independent Film Festival, this film is the extraordinary story of one Yolŋu elder’s 45-year journey fighting for the political and spiritual freedom of his people. Unflinching in his delivery and integrity, yet soft in his humanity - Rev Dr Djiniyini Gondarra has a confronting and urgent message for Australians and the world as he questions the long-standing paradigm that controls us all.

Rev. Dr Djiniyini Gondarra OAM is an initiated clan leader within the Yolŋu Nation who has spent the most part of his 79 years of life as a civil rights activist, a spiritual leader, a cross-cultural mediator, an educator and one of few elders who has dedicated his life to upholding the traditional law of his people. Filmed over 5 years in Northeast Arnhem Land and as a result of a 16-year friendship between Dr Gondarra and Director Sinem Saban, Ḻuku Ngärra: The Law of the Land presents an intimate exploration of Yolŋu law and how it has kept their people in balance with the environment and with each other for over tens of thousands of years. With the onset of colonisation and the enforcement of its ideologies and laws, the film illuminates how this foreign system that is so completely at odds with their own has created chaos to their lives, their spirituality and the environment.

Through the first-hand experience living between two worlds and the pool of wisdom that comes from such an experience, Dr Gondarra demands that we ask the big questions around what is law, what is freedom and who is really in control of our lives?
