Collisions is a virtual reality short film that tells the story of Aboriginal elder Nyarri Nyarri Morgan, a Martu man from the remote Pilbara desert in Western Australia, he lived his early life with no knowledge or contact with Western culture. These screenings will include a short talk from Curtis Taylor, a filmmaker, screen artist and a young Martu leader.

Filmed in Lisbon over seven consecutive sunrises, Forgiving Night for Day by Jacobus Capone is a contemplative reflection on the poetic Portuguese word ‘saudade’, an expression of deep nostalgia and longing for people, places and times irrevocably lost.
