Aboriginal Corporation (ASAC):
Media Mob Training
Film Workshop / Media Training / Indigenous
Maitree facilitator, Peta Khan, ran a 4-week filmmaking training with a group of emerging creatives based in Angurugu community, Groote Eylandt. The training was a foundational filmmaking course so staff of ASAC and local community members could continue to produce their own short films, cultural stories and event coverage.
ASAC's mandate is to protect, preserve and maintain the culture of the Anindilyakwa people on Groote Eylandt, so each trainee chose a cultural story to produce for screening at the annual One People One Voice Festival.
The group produced some great results in a short time - each small team developing their film concepts, filming and editing their individual pieces. Here are some of their final films:

The Life and Times of Poison Whisky
