Our Way

Added by Ninti Media

Description Meet Kushia Young. She can’t hear you. But she can draw you a mystical character in under 10 minutes. This profoundly deaf 21-year-old artist from the remote APY Lands in the north-western deserts of South Australia is being recognised for her unique contemporary indigenous drawings. Through rare photos and videos from her early years, this documentary reveals the challenges Kushia has been forced to overcome through issues of isolation, disability and cultural integration. Tastefully illustrated with scores of her stunning drawings, this is a powerful and heart-warming story of a truly captivating character whose strength in overcoming disadvantage is found in the pages of her creations.
