Abstract

Elders tells the story of a young indigenous boy, challenged by his Elders to learn the lessons of his country. Based on a true story told by writer Tracey Rigney’s grandfather, the film focusses on the unique attributes of the country in which it is set, of the Wojobaluk desert country of the Wimmerra region, and the passing of traditional Indigenous knowledge and understanding of country between generations. Representation of country is therefore the key to the design of the film
