Remembered By
This screening and talk program interprets Indigenous representation on screen, through the lenses of contemporary Aboriginal artists and curators.

Reko Rennie, ACMI's Artist in Residence, has selected a number of film titles featuring Indigenous subject matter, ranging from historical to more contemporary works.

Leading figures in the Indigenous arts community have been invited to respond to and reappraise the works through a contemporary perspective, challenging the assumptions of how Aboriginal identity is often 'remembered' in screen representation.

Speakers include Genevieve Greeves, lead curator on the redevelopment of Bunjilaka at the Melbourne Museum, and Glenn Iseger-Pilkington, from the Nyoongar and Yamatji peoples of WA and acting curator of Indigenous Art at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.

Screening:

Wrong Side of the Road
Ned Lander, 80 mins, Australia, 1981
Two days on the road with the Aboriginal rock bands No Fixed Address and Us Mob. The band members act out incidents from their own lives and their friends.

Babakiueria
Don Featherstone, 30 mins, Australia, 1987
Highlights the farcical nature of black stereotypes used in the media in a hilarious mockumentary style.

Poison
Michael Riley, 29 mins, Australia, 1996
An ugly, yet surprisingly beautiful, story of four troubled young people living together in a city squat. Taking place within 24 hours, the story begins with languid preparations for a night on the town.
