Creating wellness for ourselves - healing with community, country and culture.
Personal stories of overcoming adversity, mental health and suicide.
An international feature length film shot in HD that is Aboriginal Goori written and directed. This film will be shot across a number of Australian locations by award winning filmmakers with actors and support crew.
52 minutes of culture, country, listening deeply, connecting in love, sharing, healing featuring storylines that address the suicide epidemic we have in Australia and around the world. Excerpts from interviews with Aboriginal Elders, leaders and custodians who are working together to address this issue will also feature in the film project website.
In Aboriginal Australia, we have the worst statistics in the world and children as young as eight have taken their lives. Aboriginal Elders, leaders and custodians are working to support those in need and beyond their immediate communities. This film in many ways is about the challenges we all face in life, the hope that is generated when we help others and ways we learn to live a healthy life and happy life no matter what we the challenge.
This film is about action, about healing, about wellness. Stories of enduring strength, amazing resilience, incredible achievements despite the odds. Stories of good things. Dealing with depression, trauma, anxiety. This film will action change by connecting people and affecting change across the world.
It will create conversations and lead to actions. Together we can make a difference and this film is a stepping stone to the bigger vision. We aren’t going to stop, we have big dreams, we have many amazing people and we know you are one of our supporters.
Join us, help us, support us.
Let’s build this film together!
