DIFF - Westwind: Djalu's Legacy

SPECIAL EVENT FEATURING LIVE PERFORMANCES AND PRESENTED BY DIRECTOR BEN STRUNIN AND YIDAKI MASTER DJALU GURRUWIWI

Djalu is an aging tribal elder, a yidaki master and custodian of an ancient dreaming. Feeling he has no-one to inherit his sacred and esoteric traditional songlines, Djalu seeks a solution.

He sets out to make a film, a film that will take him to the world and find a willing custodian for the next generation.
