Regina Pilawuk Wilson documentary project
Over the last 5 years, I have been going back and forth from one of the most remote Aboriginal communities in Australia, Peppimenarti.
Peppimenarti has the population of about 300 people in the dry season and 150 in the wet season due to limited access. It is a place that over the years I have done many collaborative film projects and every time I go back I am fortunate to learn something new. This last trip was after I had travelled to the US with local artist Regina Pilawuk Wilson on behalf of the Australian Embassy. We captured many stories of family connection and spiritual rituals and beliefs of the land and animals to tie back. I am crafting this material in collaboration with Regina to make a biopic documentary on her life as an artist and trailblazer.
