Melbourne Festival, 2014

Although only 600kms from Darwin, Ramingining may as well be in a country other than Australia. It is persistently, almost wilfully, foreign. The people, of a strong, defiant tradition, often speak no English, and struggle to comprehend the madness of rapid change thrashing through their world order. In short, it makes Ramingining a wonderfully and enticingly bizarre, complex and challenging place, for the inhabitants and visitors alike. The documentary examines, largely visually, how the people in and around Ramininging township spend their time. It offers insight into the ways in which Yolngu culture continues to absorb and adapt to the dominant Balanda (white) culture, yet retain its own identity.
