As Worlds Divide screens in Redfern & Bondi

Last week we shared Mentawai’s As Worlds Divide film and the #wafsac campaign with a packed audience at both 107 Projects in Redfern and the Bondi Pavilion, Bondi.

The response from the people in these two Sydney communities was overwhelmingly positive, with more than $6000 raised for the Mentawai’s Cultural and Environmental Education Program (CEEP). This achieved by their simply taking the time to watch a film and hear the voice of indigenous Mentawai. $6,000 is more than half the budget required to develop, design and publish a Mentawai language dictionary. Incredible.
