Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair's Indigenous Film Gala - a Darwin Festival Event!

From the remote Australian desert to the opulence of Buckingham Palace, Namatjira Project is the iconic story of the Namatjira family, tracing their quest for justice.

The screening of the documentary is just one component of the DAAF Film Gala evening, which will also include a panel discussion after the film.

Plus before the film DAAF will host a masterclass watercolour workshop on Deckchair's Sunset Deck, with members of the Namatjira family, and a music performance.

“Our Western Aranda communities today face many of the same difficulties Albert Namatjira did over sixty years ago. We are strong, but our painting tradition - our livelihood – is fragile. Getting this documentary out for the world to see will help us continue the work passed down to us by Albert. Help us to keep our culture strong, to teach the young ones and to celebrate our remarkable heritage into the future.”
