Short Film - 'Ngimbalien' (Contribution) - Fingal Head NSW

Our Way

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Desert Pea Media is very proud to announce a new collaboration with the Goodjenburra community in Fingal Head, on the North Coast of NSW.

This production, along with a song & music video (Booningbah Goories - 'My Connection' was created over 14 days in January 2020 - an outcome of a unique, collaborative creative process with Desert Pea Media artists, local Goodjenurra young people, community members, Elders, and local services.

The overall purpose of this particular project was to facilitate an important, inter-generational conversation about social and emotional well-being for Original Nations young people in 8 communities around the North Coast. The project is called 'Break It Down - Community Conversations Around Well-being' - funded by North Coast Primary Health Network.

Desert Pea Media projects involve a dialogue-based storytelling process that encourages participants to analyze 'the real', 'the ideal' and 'the bridge'. In simple terms this means critically thinking about how to create positive change for yourself, for each other and for our communities ?

The connections created during this project with the community and local young people are friendships that the DPM team highly value and respect. We as a team feel deeply honored to learn, share and create with the Fingal Head families and wider community. These projects not only uplift and inspire audiences and community members, but everybody involved.

'Ngimbalien' was directed by Sydney-based filmmaker and DPM team member Genevieve Kaiser. We thank you sis for your artistic vision and awesome work.

Special thanks to Marni Tuala, Kyle and Jarulah Slabb and all the Fingal Mob for all of your incredible support.

We are deeply honored to be invited to learn, share and create with you and your family. We honor the ancestors and the stories that reside in this country, and we do our best to tread lightly, to be respectful and to contribute wherever possible. Thanks for the lessons :)
