The Title means "that which gives life'. Wanggarra is a film about family histories, relationship & respect amongst the Yindjibardi & Ngarluma people of the West Pilbra, Western Australia. It tells the story of families and their origins in country; describes the concept of home or nurra; and explains traditions of skin relationship and respect within extended families and the traditional life of the community. The film celebrates the richness and complexity of family life with an attention to detail not documented before for the Yindjibarndi.
Students chose to make a clip about Shake-a-leg, a dance that belongs to the community and which they often share at cultural events, with Lawrence Omeenyou and Patrick Butcher singing and playing drum.
