Mammung is the Noongar name for the whale: A creature that carries songs and stories through the world's oceans, transmitting them from the Perth Canyon to all the continents of the globe.
In this film, Mammung tells the story of a period of climatic change that rivals the one we are seeing today. 10,000 years ago, Western Australia experienced rapid sea-level rise. The film explores Noongar memory of this event, following Dr Noel Nannup in recalling the significance of places that are now below the sea and the dramatic process of change that indigenous people endured.
It challenges us to ask: can we learn to understand and value this rich body of knowledge as we too adapt to a changing climate? And what awaits us if we don't?
Join us for the premiere screening of Mammung, followed by a Q&A with director Maevia Griffiths and producer Lillian Robb.
Drinks will be available 30 minutes before and after the event for networking opportunities.
