Longyard Station

Our Way

Added by italk Studios

Description Produced in the iTalk Media Production Training at the Alice Springs Correctional centre.

“It's a story about a young fella, staying out of trouble and finding a good job out bush. Away from town and all the trouble there. He's learning from the older fellas. It's based on the outstation in my country called Ipolera Station. I grew up there. There's still lots of people living there and they're still looking for young fellas to work out there, to teach them. Maybe they'll stay out of trouble too. They need something to keep them busy."

A part of the compilation created for the Alice Springs Desert Festival 2017, produced as part of the italk Media Training at Alice Springs Correctional Centre

In prison, everybody has a story. Here at italk, we enable people to share those stories.

italk Media Training starts where people are strong. Strong in speaking their own language. Strong in making pictures. Strong at telling stories.

Starting with these strengths, trainees learn the skills to produce a short video about their life. Throughout the creative process, people can think about what is important to them. Where am I now? Where do I want to be?

This story was produced by trainees in the italk studios media production program:
