Liyarn Ngarn (Unfinished business) [Videorecording]
Mhando, M. (2007) Liyarn Ngarn (Unfinished business) [Videorecording]. ANTaR .
“Liyarn Ngarn”, in the Yawuru language of the West Kimberly region around Broome, means “Coming Together of the Spirit”. Liyarn Ngarn represents a thirty year long mission of Indigenous leader and Yawura man, Patrick Dodson, to bring about a lasting and true reconciliation between the original owners and the immigrants.
Liyarn Ngarn is a compelling documentary that tells of the devastation and inhumanity bought upon Indigenous people in every aspect of their daily lives. Personal stories of injustice are recounted by renowned English actor Pete Postlethwaite, as told to him by Patrick Dodson and Bill Johnson, an old English school friend, whose Indigenous son Louis died tragically.
Respected songman, Archie Roach, adds his powerful lyrics and voice to this often painful, yet inspiring, journey of strength.
Liyarn Ngarn aims to change peoples’ perception and attitude to Indigenous people and to assist with the process of true and lasting reconciliation. It is also offers some kind of meaningful epitaph to the Indigenous lives lost through sheer inhumanity.
