Shell documentary goes global
A Tasmanian-made documentary about the ancient art of Aboriginal shell stringing, kanalaritja: An Unbroken String, has been selected to play at four film festivals around the world. Co-funded by Screen Tasmania and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), and based on an award-winning TMAG exhibition of the same name, the Roar Film documentary has received invitations to the Red Nation Film Festival and the Tribal Film Festival in the United States, to the Barcelona Planet Film Festival in Spain and the Eurasia Film Festival in Russia. The TMAG exhibition on which the film was based won the Australian and New Zealand Museum and Galleries Award for Best Indigenous Project.
