The Score: Jazz Money reconsiders archives
How can archives be understood, reconsidered and recontextualised from a First Nations perspective?
Wiradjuri artist and poet Jazz Money calls in to The Score to tell Samirah about their new project WINHANGANHA. For the past two years Jazz has been sifting through the National Film and Sound Archive's collections of works made by and about First Nations people. The resulting film, WINHANGANHA, is named for a Wiradjuri word that Jazz says doesn't translate literally into English but can mean “simultaneously to know, to think, and remember”.
You can watch the trailer for WINHANGANHA here, and the film is screening for free at ACMI on Wednesday December 6th followed by a Q&A moderated by Dr Paola Balla.
