Interview with Karrabing Film Collective
The Karrabing Film Collective is a media group consisting of more than 30 intergenerational Aboriginal filmmakers from Australia’s Northern Territory. Together, amid contemporary settler colonialism and constant state interventions, they create films that challenge Australian political culture. Their body of cinematic work re-animates a complex assemblage of practices and scales of relation: to the land, to geology, to ancestors, to human and non-human life, and to visual culture.
In this interview, the collective discuss what drives their films, their relationship with ancestral spirits, and their work in the KADIST collection The Mermaids, or Aiden in Wonderland (2018)
