Nepabunna - Reviving Traditions

A 53' documentary directed in 2000 by Claude-Pierre Chavanon

In South Australia, the village of Nepabunna has only 80 inhabitants remaining, all of them Aborigines.

Nepabunna, founded by the white man, yet cradle of the Adnyamathana tribe, is inexorably losing its identity, clinging to its memories and a few sacred rites.

But the topic of interest is the very moment when some of the villagers decide to save their home, to pass on the language, to build a lively cultural centre and to perpetuate the culture through Art.
