MCA NAIDOC Week Free Film Program
Ten Canoes (2006) directed by Rolf de Heer and Peter Djigirr

Spend your lunchtime watching free films made by Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander filmmakers

Pop into the MCA during NAIDOC Week to catch a free movie made by Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander filmmakers. Kids will enjoy the animated short Wadu Matyidi, screening on the Monday; it tells the story of a mischievous group of pre-contact Adnyamathanha kids who get more than they bargained for while exploring. On Tuesday, Tony Krawotz's 2011 film Tall Man tells the gripping story of police violence and the courtroom aftermath. Wednesday's flick is Buckskin, a 57-minute movie about a man on a mission to teach the Kaurna language of his ancestors. There'll be two shorts screened before Buckskin. On Thursday, see Rachel Perkins' film Black Panther Woman (2014) and the 30-minute BabaKiueria. And on Friday, skip lunch for Rolf de Heer and Peter Djigirr's Ten Canoes – a story within a story of love, marriage and betrayal.
