Collisions at ACMI
Lynette Wallworth’s immersive film, Collisions, takes viewers to the Pilbara desert in Western Australia, where you meet Martu elder Nyarri Nyarri Morgan and relive his first indirect encounter with white settlers. Five decades ago he witnessed a nuclear test. We meet the country, we meet his family, and then we are confronted with the violent eruption of nuclear light, and a billowing spectre of smoke.
Rather than sitting in the cinema and being told something, Wallworth makes you a participant in events.
Lynette Wallworth’s Collisions is at ACMI from October 6, 2016 until January 15, 2017. Tickets are free but bookings are recommended as screenings are limited. You can book up to a week before each screening. The film goes for 18 minutes.
