Wadjemup: Black Prison - White Playground
The Island of Rottnest is commonly known to Nyungar people as Wadjemup, meaning "place across the river". Located approximately 18 km off the coast of Western Australia, near Fremantle, it is world renowned as a tourism precinct. Less well known is its hidden history related to Aboriginal incarceration, dispossession and death.
Funded via the Australian Research Council this docu-drama investigates and examines the Nyungar cosmology and spirituality related to the Island and its cultural significance to Nyungar knowledge and history.
