Lurujarri Dreaming DVD
Lurujarri Dreaming tells the stories of the Goolarabooloo community of Western Australia, and their connection to sacred country. Travel along the Lurujarri Dreaming Trail that follows the Songcycle north from Broome, through Dreamtime and history. Along the way hear stories told by elders, children, women and men about their vision for reconciliation and caring for Country. Featuring a sublime musical score by Deadly Award winning Kimberely musicians Alan and Stephen Pigram, Lurujarri Dreaming tells the stories of a people and a place that are currently threatened by massive industrialisation
In July this year, Lurujarri Dreaming won an award for ‘Best Indigenous Film’ at the Heart of Gold International Film Festival (see photo attached of Senior Law Boss Phillip Roe and the Goolarabooloo family with the award), and was officially selected for the Down Under Berlin Film Festival, where it will make it’s European premier in mid September. Carsten Wergin who was working with the Broome community on his post doctoral thesis about Broome tourism will be introducing the film at the festival.

This year the Goolarabooloo ran four Lurujarri Heritage Trails, during one of the busiest whale migration periods…lots of stubbed toes as people watched the whales breach and not where they were walking! Stay tuned to their website for updates about next year’s trails, as they book out very quickly!

DEVELOPMENT IN AND AROUND WALMADANY/JAMES PRICE POINT- STILL A THREAT
Woodside Petroleum pulled out of the proposal to process LNG at Walmadany in April this year, which has been a massive relief for the Goolarabooloo and other people in the Broome community.Unfortunately the fight continues to save this land, it’s Songlines and the Lurujarri Heritage Trail, as WA Premier Colin Barnett is continuing his push to compulsorily aquire the land. He is intent on building a port as part of his plan to industrialize the Kimbereley and in his own words, tranform Broome into ‘the next Dubai’.

The film received a $5000 grant from the Hamer Family Fund, and over a hundred people supported the project with online donations through two rounds of crowdfunding – one through Pozible. The majority of this film was self-funded and made possible by the generosity of creatives providing pro-bono work.
