The Screen Guide

Across a series of flashbacks, an extended Indigenous family argues about what caused their boat’s motor to break down and leave them stranded out bush. As they consider the roles played in the incident by the ancestral present, the regulatory state and the Christian faith, Wutharr, Saltwater Dreams explores the multiple demands and inescapable vortexes of contemporary Indigenous life. The most surreal and near-psychedelic of Karrabing Film Collective’s productions to date, Wutharr, Saltwater Dreams explores how the collective’s Indigenous film-makers experience the containment of missionary-Christian moral codes as well as settler-colonial rule-of-law, and how these layer, displace, but ultimately are absorbed into ancestral territorial arrangements secured in sweat and through generational obligation.
