Increasingly Aboriginal people in Australia are being recognised as the first astronomers.

When the ancient wisdoms of the universe held by the oldest culture on earth meet modern astrophysics, a new concept is born – cultural astronomy.

In the meeting of minds between Prof Ray Norris, (CSIRO) astrophysicist project leader of the Evolutionary Mapping of the Universe (EMU), and Ghillar Michael Anderson, leader of the Euahlayi people of north-west New South Wales, extraordinary parallels emerge in the two cultures – such as ‘wormholes’ and the pathway to Bullima, the Euahlayi Sky Camp, via the hollow Coolabah tree.

In Star Stories of The Dreaming, Ghillar shares publicly for the first time teachings passed to him as the knowledge holder for his people, the Euahlayi.

After the screening there will be a Q&A with the movie maker,  Ellie Gilbert !
