Lismore-based Wiradjuri artist Karla Dickens has partnered with Bunurong, Yuin and Tasmanian man Bruce Pascoe to create Mother’s Little Helper, a film project produced with Blacklock Media.
“As Indigenous Australians we connect with Country and refer to the planet as Mother Earth. Recently a small group of First Nation adults and children from different parts of Australia gathered in Bingara, NSW to create a visual story. Our short film speaks of our concerns and the importance of healing ‘The Mother’ with the help of our youth, who are our future and our only hope.
Known and respected for his great words Uncle Bruce Pascoe will not speak in this film - it is the viewers’ responsibly to look hard, learn quickly and listen deeply. What will you see? What action will you take?”
- Karla Dickens
