Totem & Ore film screening
Thursday 6 August 2020
Free admission: RSVP here by 5pm Tuesday, 4 August.
Totem & Ore is a story about the past, the present and the future, that connects nuclear issues in Australia and Japan. It gives context to the effects of the atomic bomb on the population of Hiroshima in 1945 up until today, comparing those atomic survivors with indigenous communities in Australia who were affected by 1950’s British nuclear testing of 12 atomic weapons and 500 minor trials on Aboriginal land.
It’s a human story, about the frailty of human lives, human experiences and human tragedy.
Directed, produced and edited by Wintec academic and filmmaker, John Mandelberg, the film also features the musical talent of composer and Wintec Music and Performing Arts Manager, David Sidwell, and sound design from Wintec academic Kent Macpherson. Totem & Ore is animated by Wintec alumni Dawn Tuffery, the camera assistant is Wintec honours student, Paige Larianova with voice over sound recording by Wintec Music Technician, Brad Morgan.
