Djaambi centres on Reg, a young First Nations man who is transitioning between past decisions and the new. Made raw in the wake of the death of his close cousin, Tjarrah, Reg’s experiences with racism at the hands of his work colleague challenge his sense of identity, making him anxious. Embarking on a spiritual journey, reflecting on the past to reassure his present decisions, Tjarrah guides Reg through his grief. Djaambi touches on contemporary themes of racism and mental health while navigating one’s place in Australian society, illustrating the impact of cultural overload and the aftermath of trauma.
