Songman Film Project

Mainstream society does not recognise the cultural work that every Yolngu man and woman is obligated to perform throughout the year.

The Songman film project follows Terrence Gurruwiwi for three months and shows the extraordinary intensity of work involved in cultural duties and the innovative ways in which the communities support these activities. The goal of the film is to ensure that government and industry understand and support the Yolngu cultural economy  and reward it.
