2020 Film Winner: Love Letter to the North
Love Letter to the North by Mardi Reardon-Smith
The work is a medium-length ethnographic film (38 minutes). It was made in 2018-2019 during my PhD fieldwork in south-east Cape York on Lama Lama, Kuku Thaypan, Olkola and Guugu Yimithirr country. I worked with non-Indigenous cattle station families, Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service rangers, the Lama Lama land trust rangers, and Rinyirru Aboriginal Corporation rangers and their families. The film depicts a variety of land-management activities including cattle work and fire-management, and day-to-day life in Cape York. It includes music by Brisbane duo Richard&Linda and Sydney band G2G.
