Film is one of the great mediums for connecting us to story and culture. Both are vital elements in many indigenous communities, and we love having the opportunity to use film to bring otherwise untold stories to our audience in celebration of global diversity and connection.
Byron Bay Film Festival is proud to feature so many amazing stories from First Nations peoples all over the world.
Westwind: Djalu’s Legacy tells the story of Djalu Gurruwiwi, an ageing Yolgnu elder who is running out of time to pass on the Yidaki (didgeridoo) Songlines entrusted to him – his clan’s knowledge, culture and country.
