Memories of Media
VODmilk archive

MEMORIES OF MEDIA brings together two short films by Mparntwe (Alice Springs) based filmmakers to explore the history of Aboriginal media and representation from two very personal perspectives. Both films were made to explore and document the histories of family members.

Josef Jakamarra Egger and Viviana Petyarre were trainees at CAAMA (Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association) when they made these films, their debut efforts. CAAMA has kickstarted the careers of some of the most well known Aboriginal filmmakers across the country; Rachel Perkins, Warwick Thornton, Beck Cole, and Erica Glynn amongst many others. Founded by Freda Glynn, Phillip Batty and John Macumba in 1980, CAAMA has been a central force in creating Indigenous media and promoting Indigenous voices.

Jupurrurla and Petyarre both look back at the archives of CAAMA and Warlpiri Media Association (founded in 1983, now PAW Media), re-contextualising this media history in the current age. Both films are also incredibly personal stories; Viviana searches for the caves that her grandparents used to inhabit while Josef searches for answers about his fathers pioneering career.

The films offer the possibility of an emerging new-wave of young Central Australian filmmakers, determined to present the stories of their people.

MEMORIES OF MEDIA mengangkat dua film pendek karya filmmaker asal Mparntwe (Alice Springs) yang mengeksplorasi sejarah media Aborigin melalui representasi dan dua perspektif pribadi. Kedua film diciptakan dengan intensi untuk menulusuri dan mengungkap sejarah masing-masing anggota keluarga.

Josef Jakamarra Egger dan Viviana Petyarre adalah trainee di CAAMA (Asosiasi Media Aborigin Australia Tengah) kala mereka menggarap film-film tersebut, karya debut
mereka. CAAMA telah merintis karir berbagai filmmaker Aborigin yang telah melintasi negeri: Rachel Perkins, Warwick Thornton, Beck Cole dan Erica Glynn, adalah sebagian dari nama-nama prominen di industri sinema. Didirikan oleh Freda Gylnn, Phillip Batty dan John Macumba pada tahun 1980, CAAMA telah menjadi kekuatan utama dalam pembentukan media pribumi dan memajukan aspirasi masyarakat pribumi.

Jupurrurla dan Petyarre berpedoman kepada arsip CAAMA dan Warlpiri Media Association (didirikan pada tahun 1983, sekarang PAW Media), dan merupakan kontekstualisasi ulang sejarah media Aborigin di era ini. Masing-masing film adalah cerita satu sisi yang personal; Vivianne yang melacak gua kediaman buyutnya, dan Josef yang mencari jawaban dibalik karir eminen ayahnya.

Film-film ini menunjukkan peluang bangkitnya gelombang-baru para filmmakers muda di Australia Tengah, bertekad untuk menayangkan kisah orang-orang terdekat mereka.

Petyarre

2017

Viviana Petyarre

Petyarre depicts the search by the artist Gloria Petyarre and her family for a cave that figures strongly in the culture of her people.

The filmmaker, Viviana Petyarre, an Alyawarre woman, is granddaughter and grandniece to three famous artists who were at the forefront of the Utopia Women's Art movement in the 1980s. Viviana grew up with her 'nanas' on the remote community of Alparra, 200kms north-east of Alice Springs. Viviana was then separated from extended family and her culture for many years, but she returned to live in Central Australia, and decided to re-connect with her heritage with the aid of her relatives.

Viviana travels deep within the landscape of Atnangkere, but it has been a long time since the women have visited the cave. Will they be able to find it again?

Petyarre mengisahkan pencarian sebuah gua oleh seniman Gloria Petyarre, dan didampingi aggota keluarganya—gua yang berperan signifikan terhadap kultur keturunan mereka.

Viviana Petyarre, kreator dibalik dokumenter ini, adalah wanita asal Alyawarre dan merupakan cucu dari ketiga seniman ternama yang berada di garis depan Gerakan Seni Perempuan Utopia di era 1980an. Sejak kecil Viviana tumbuh bersama para 'nana'-nya di komunitas terpencil, Alparra, yang terletak 20 kilometer timur laut dari kota Alice Springs. Namun Viviana terpisah dari keluarga besar serta budayanya selama bertahun-tahun, dan kemudian kembali untuk berdiam di Australia Tengah, dan akhirnya ia memutuskan untuk menjalin kembali ikatan dengan warisannya, yang dibantu oleh dua kerabat dekatnya.

Viviana menjelejahi kedalaman bentang alam Atnangkere, namun sudah lama sejak terakhir kali wanita-wanita ini mengunjungi gua tersebut. Akankah mereka menemukannya?
