KARRABING FILM COLLECTIVE - SHORTS PROGRAMME

  • 3 films

The Karrabing Film Collective use filmmaking as a form of Indigenous grassroots resistance and self-organisation. An extended family group that has over fifty members from Belyuen, Northern Territory, Australia, together, Karrabing have sought to create a model for Indigenous filmmaking and activism that brings together different tribes and languages, and conceives works through an infrastructure of communal thinking and collective experimentation. Beyond the binaries of the fictional and the documentary, the past and the present, their work exposes and intervenes into the longstanding structures of colonial violence that impact members directly: environmental devastation, land restrictions, and economic exploitation.
