“Nicole Ma’s rich, engrossing and rewarding documentary gives us a sense of time that operates on many levels. It’s about an individual, a culture, a land rights claim and a vision of the past and the future. It’s political and personal, serious and light-hearted, and never less than striking to look at.” SMH
plus MIMI Warwick Thorton’s 2002 13m M rated, comedy about an auction of Aboriginal artefacts where a white woman buys the painting of a fish and a Mimi sculpture. Mimis are stick-like spirits which live in rock cracks, with Sophie Lee, Aaron Pederson, David Gulpilil

Bruce McGuiness’s film of about the visit of members of the Black Theatre to the first ever National Seminar on Aboriginal Arts, which had been sponsored by the Whitlam government. In attendance at the conference were some of the most important Aboriginal artists and performers of that era, including a young David Gulpilil, singer Harold Blair, Poet Kath Walker (Oojeroo Noonuckle), playwright Jack Davis, actor Brian Syron as well as other major Aboriginal identities of that era. Thus the film includes rare footage of people such as Don Brady, Eileen Lester, Ken Colbung, Lindsay Roughsey, Chika Dixon, Steve Mam, Roslyn Watson, Denis Walker and many others.
Time to Dream is an important filmic examination of the legends of the Aboriginal arts world of 1972, yet despite its historical significance it has had few public screenings since it was made.
At the time of Bruce McGuiness’s death, only two digital copies of the film remained. Dr Gary Foley has generously loaned Wal Saunders his copy to screen at Tarerer. Thank you.
Lyndon’s Story 2010 30 mins PG, a biographical film of a local elder.
