The Screen Guide

OOLDEA is an observational documentary which follows the journey of composer Iain Grandage as he journeys through Spinifex land and culture. The traditional elders of the Great Victoria Desert reveal stories of the Tjukurppa and share Inma (traditional songs) from Ooldea and the surrounding lands. When elders join Iain and the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra to perform, Ooldea becomes a meeting place, a campfire around which history may become a source of shared pride. With deadlines looming and events not going to plan, Iain is forced to confront some of his own personal demons.
