Digital film is the ideal media for recording everything from the vastness of a landscape to the small, subtle nuances of a person’s facial expression. It can provide a way to tell stories which is, in many ways, faithful to the oral tradition.
Offering a production house and digital archive, Anindilyakwa Media is focused on the preservation of culture through sharing stories. Amanda Walsh, principal film maker, provides a non-invasive platform where people can connect with one of the world’s oldest living cultures. Particular attention is paid to ‘resting’ and ‘blocking’ of films where viewing permission has been withdrawn for cultural reasons, or when the image or name cannot be said due to the person becoming deceased.
