Facing her own mortality weaver Jean is on a mission to complete her ultimate korowai
Her hunt for weka feathers take us to windswept Rēkohu.
KaYaMenTaDuration: 19 mins
Director: Jules Koostachin
Five Indigenous women gather to share food and stories about a phase in life with little support or shared knowledge. KaYaMenTa invites our sisters and our viewers to face their own fears of getting older and tackles the taboo around menopause through an Indigenous woman’s lens – one that engages with sexuality, ageing, spirituality and healing.
Lady LashDuration: 29 mins
Director: Rochelle Humphrey
Lady Lash celebrates the power of creativity against adversity aiming to dilute Australia’s negative media of Aboriginal women and the lack of real representation with personal stories. This film challenges the colonial mindset that destruction of ‘country’ is worth the profits it generates.

Mujeres Espiritu (Spirit Women)Duration: 5 mins
Director: Francisco Huichaqueo
Spirit Women weaves a collective portrait of five women united by spirituality and poetry. The film features Tsotsil, Mapuzungun, Quechua and Spanish forming a semantic field that not only is spoken word but is also enriched by the sonority of each mother tongue.
