Movie- WE ARE STILL HERE (8.00pm)


February 4, 2023

In order to move forward, we must first look back

We Are Still Here is a unique Indigenous film that interweaves eight powerful tales to tell a
sweeping story of hope and survival.

Through the eyes of eight protagonists, We Are Still Here traverses 1000 years from past,
present, and future to explore stories of kinship, loss, grief, and resilience. But ultimately, it
shows the strength of love and hope to overcome shared traumas that Indigenous people
from Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific have continued to face.

From the beginning of time, in a Utopian world, a traditional fisherwoman and her Daughter
are fishing when they pull up an ominous ship, foreshadowing stormy seas and tragedy to
follow. Forward to 1862, a British Settler threatens an Aboriginal man to lead him to safety,
whilst in New Zealand, tribes cocooned deep in the forest are preparing for a terrifying
future.

In 1915, men from the Pacific were sent to support the British Colony in World War One fighting for a land that isn't theirs, with uncertainty of ever seeing home again. Flashing forward into a dystopian future, a young child must navigate her way through a dangerous underground marketplace to save her grandfather and survive.

We Are Still Here showcases the expansive landscapes of the Central Australian Desert to the lush green rainforests of New Zealand.

In spite of colonialism, racism, imperialism and the attempted erasure of Indigenous lives,
WE ARE STILL HERE.
