The Earth Above – CVIFF

June 3 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm AEST

This film explores Australia’s past 140,000 years, incorporating traditional and scientific knowledge to tell Australia’s epic story. Viewers are transported to four locations: Girraween Lagoon on Larrakia and Wulna Country outside Darwin in the NT; Cloggs Cave on GunaiKurnai Country in Victoria’s East Gippsland region; Lake Mungo in NSW on the land of the Barkandji/Paakantyi, Ngyiampaa and Mutthi Mutthi people; and Jiigurru (Lizard Island) on the Great Barrier Reef, which is sacred to many, including the Dingaal community.
The Earth Above: A Deep Time View of Australia’s Epic History is a feature-length full-dome planetarium show from the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH) produced by the Deakin MotionLab in collaboration with First Nations communities and UOW Science Space.
