• The Mulka Project - Video.

    The name Mulka means a sacred but public ceremony, and, to hold or protect. The mission is to sustain and protect Yol?u cultural knowledge in Northeast Arnhem Land under the leadership of community members. The Mulka production house and archive is managed by Yolngu law, governance and culture. The Mulka Project is actively involved in partnerships with academia, museums and individual researchers with collections and projects significant to our region. We are very keen to get access to any and all text, images, sound and video related to the community and to work with those who can provide relevant training and experience to Yolngu people.

The community still asks about all the members of the film crew to this day. To me, this shows that when things are done in the correct way, an ongoing connection between a community and filmmakers is formed. It shows how those connections become a form of Indigenous resilience for everyone involved. Colonialism has ruptured Indigenous peoples’ lives. I see films such as The Farm as an opportunity for Indigenous people to reconnect: to emphasise connections between ourselves, and our shared connection with the land. This idea of reconnecting with each other and with our land informs everything about The Farm.
