Manapanmirr, in Christmas Spirit

Gurrumuruwuy, Paul; Yangathu, Fiona; Deger, Jennifer; Mackenzie, David


The complex sorrows and joys of Christmas in northeast Arnhem Land, one of the largest and most isolated tracts of Aboriginal land in Australia, are imbued with the transformative cycle of life, death, and rebirth. This film examines how stories first brought by missionaries in the mid-20th century have become the basis for celebrating the enduring place of the ancestral in the modern world.
