Short Film - 'Breaking of the Chains' (Kakadu NT)

Our Way

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Desert Pea Media is very proud to present a new collaboration with the community of Jabiru, NT. A mining and services town in the centre of dual-world heritage listed Kakadu National Park. The community of Jabiru is also considered 'the gateway to Arnhem Land'.

This production was created in September of 2020 - an outcome of a unique, collaborative creative process between Desert Pea Media, Red Lily Health (a local Indigenous-led Health Service) and local community members, elders and artists.

The overall purpose of the broader project was to facilitate an important, inter-generational conversation about social and emotional well-being for Original Nations communities. Focusing on cultural identity, health and positive choices.

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.

Thanks to Patricia Miller, Emma Cameron and the staff at Red Lily Health. Also to Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation and Jabiru Area School.

Special thanks to the TO's of Jabiru - The Mirrar People, and all of the Clan Groups of Kakadu that welcomed us and shared their country for the creation of this production. We are humbled and grateful for your trust and support.
