Baŋgay Lore

About

Baŋgay Lore, meaning spear in the Dyirabal language of Far North QLD, is a short film that showcases how aboriginal culture is perceived when it is performed on stage, and when it is expressed in everyday society. It is about the limitations wrongly placed on the expression of aboriginal culture. It follows the journey of a young aboriginal dancer as he struggles with acceptance of his culture outside of the theatre.
