The Screen Guide

Initiated Warlpiri man, Steve Jampijinpa Patrick has been the creative director for the last seven years of the powerful Milpirri performance staged in the outback Aboriginal community of Lajamanu. Jampijinpa and collaborators Tracks Dance have been central to the performance, a bi-cultural event celebrating Warlpiri culture in a modern context. But Jampijinpa is leaving for a new challenge in Canberra and in his absence the community and Tracks Dance will need to take on the enormous responsibility required to stage this ambitious biennial event without him. Jampijinpa returns home later in the year to find a community that has transformed its relationship to Milpirri and forged a new path for its future.
