Members of the Karrabing Film Collective will discuss their practice with one of the founding members, author Elizabeth A. Povinelli, as part of the exhibition A SCULPTURE, A FILM & SIX VIDEOS.

"Wutharr, Saltwater Dreams," a 28 minute video by the Karrabing Film Collective, is streaming online through Sunday, November 22, 2020 on the A SCULPTURE, A FILM & SIX VIDEOS exhibition website.

The Karrabing Film Collective uses film to analyze contemporary settler colonialism and through these depictions challenge its grip. In the shadow of Third Cinema and Theatre of the Oppressed, Karrabing is creating a new model for Indigenous filmmaking and activism. Co-sponsored at Wesleyan by the History Department and Center for the Humanities in conjunction with their fall 2020 theme of “Dirt.”

The Karrabing Film Collective's video "The Mermaids or Aiden in Wonderland" was screened in the Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery from Sunday, September 20 through Friday, October 2, 2020.
