Filmmaker, John Parke, will present a series of short films that capture the rich, cultural stories of Elders and other community members from Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island). The remarkable beauty of the Island provides a fitting backdrop for these deeply personal stories.

For example, some films record stories from the last remaining Aboriginal fishing crew on Minjerribah that explore how fishing the ocean beaches provides a deep connection to their culture and their ancestors.

John Parke has assisted members of the Minjerribah community to capture their cultural stories through films and multimedia productions for several years.

After the presentation, John will facilitate a short Q&A session and briefly describe the approach he used to record the stories and the lessons learned along the way.
