On at the National Film and Sound Archive (NFSA), ‘Carriberrie’ features 156 dancers, 9 cultural groups and 35 performances.
The incredible immersive journey is headlined by Australia's premier Aboriginal dance theatre group Bangarra, actors David Gulpilil and Jack Charles and the Lonely Boys band from Ngukurr, Northern Territory.
The documentary showcases stunning Australian locations and performances from iconic ceremonial traditional dance in Uluru, through to food gathering dances in the rainforest, war songs on the most northern tip of Australia and a hunting track in the central desert.
The songs and dances highlight the importance of the shared knowledge, language and culture that has been passed on for thousands of years.
An important event during the International Year of Indigenous Languages, Carriberrie is showing at the NFSA in Canberra from 11am-2pm daily until 1 June.
