As part of the NAIDOC activities across Australia, SAE will host a screening of critically-acclaimed feature documentary Zach’s Ceremony on Thursday November 12.
Described by Adam Goodes as ‘a film that has the power to change Australian society’, Zach’s Ceremony explores what it means to be a young man belonging to the oldest living culture on the planet. The documentary was filmed over five years and follows teenager Zach on his path to self-discovery in both the modern world and his ancient culture.
Director Alec Doomadgee (Zach’s father) and Impact Producer Barbara Taylor will be at the screening on Thursday November 12, where there will be an opportunity for Q&A’s.
Zach’s Ceremony celebrates the beauty of Aboriginal culture and to empower emerging generations to change the story to one of positivity and hope.
This NAIDOC week, the filmmakers are inviting viewers to immerse themselves in Zach’s world and see it through his eyes.
