- COMPLETION YEAR 2016
Celebrate the legacy of living legend Aunty Agnes Shea. Award-winning documentary filmmaker Pat Fiske has brought to light the important life story of Ngunnawal Elder Aunty Agnes Shea. Ranging from her life as a girl on Oak Hill and Hollywood missions in Yass to the present day, FOOTPRINTS ON OUR LAND captures Aunty Agnes’s life as a survivor of racism, a caring mother and grandmother and a strong advocate for her community. Her tireless service welcoming people to Ngunnawal country, in the tradition of her people, has been a major force for Reconciliation in the ACT. Tuggeranong Arts Centre produced the film, with the support of the ACT Government, to recognise and celebrate Indigenous culture in the ACT and CIFF is proud to bring this important film to a wide audience. CIFF acknowledge that the festival is held on Ngunnawal country and in opening the festival with this film we pay due respect to Aunty Agnes and all Ngunnawal elders past, present and future. All proceeds from the FOOTPRINTS ON OUR LAND screening will be donated to the Ngunnawal Elders Council.
