A Photographic Journey

Our Way

Added by Dave Laslett

Description The film, commissioned by NITV, was produced by Wankangurru / Adnyamathanha woman Lavene McKenzie and was filmed over forty-one consecutive days while the editing took over five weeks.

Ambitious in nature the fifteen minute short film traverses Lavene growing up on Umeewarra Mission, entering the workforce and ultimately finding her path through impositional elements all the while retaining her community ties, identity and strong culture.

I found this project the ultimate challenge. Creating a short film with a crew of one, to a standard I cannot falter from, and yet in the end we got across the line.

In recognition of these woman Lavene Ngatokorua commissioned Dave Laslett to create a series of video works with the support of the Davenport Community in Port Augusta.
