The Song Keepers

Dir. by Naina Sen, Australia, 2017. 84 min | Documentary

Australia’s answer to The Buena Vista Social Club, The Song Keepers tells the inspiring story of an Aboriginal women’s choir and their first tour of Germany.
In the churches of remote Central Australia, a 140-year musical legacy of ancient Aboriginal languages, German sacred hymns and baroque music is being preserved by four generations of women that make up the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir. With their charismatic musical director Morris Stuart, the choir embarks on an historical tour of Germany, singing the baroque Lutheran hymns brought to their great grandparents by German missionaries in their own Western Arrarnta and Pitjantjatjara languages. Together these remarkable women take their music and stories of cultural survival, identity and cross-cultural collaboration to the world.

Exposed

(R) Dir. Beth B, USA, 2013. 77 min | Documentary
Burlesque performance art beyond anything you’ve seen before. It’s satire. It’s parody. It’s an explosion of art and entertainment. Exposed delves deep into the heart of burlesque with a focus on eight female and male artists who use their nudity to transport us beyond sexual and social taboos. It’s powerful, enlightening, humourous, and it challenges traditional notions of body, gender, and sexuality.
