A still from Just Another Day in Indulkana




Iwantja Arts (SA)

This First Nations led short film comes from First Nations owned and governed Aboriginal art centre Iwantja Arts, which is located in the rocky, desert country of Indulkana Community on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in the remote north-west of South Australia. More then 40 young men and women from Indulkana Community story boarded, created props, and prepared dances in workshops led by Iwantja artists to create the film, which explores the intergenerational effects of the transition from traditional Anangu life prior to first contact through to contemporary life in Indulkana Community. The film incorporates dance and music, both traditional and contemporary, blending live action with animated sequences. While the film looks at the drastic and often damaging changes faced by Anangu people across generations, the project’s leaders want their film to convey a positive message, celebrating Anangu cultural resilience and a spirit of irreverent humour.
