Babakiueria: must watch now!

How had we not seen Babakiueria, a short satirical film that flips the story of colonisation in this country? Made in 1986, the film examines the customs of white natives from the perspective of the black colonisers. What starts off as funny, quickly becomes a distressing indictment of the impact of colonisation on our First Nations people.

Nick was introduced to the film at the Danjoo Koorliny Co-Design Masterclass, held last week as part of UWA’s Social Impact Festival. Led by Noongar Elders, Noel Nannup, Carol Innes, Colleen Hayward and Richard Walley, the theme for the day centred on ‘dahni’ – a Noongar word for deep listening – the essential starting point for meaningful engagement and authentic co-design.

Nick says it was an emotional day, one that he was privileged to join. Everyone was seated in a huge yarning circle and everyone was given a chance to share stories and thoughts.

We recommend laying off Schitt’s Creek for the night and watch this instead:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqcFg4z6EYY
