The Antarrengeny song series from Utopia in Central Australia is one of the most well-known women’s ceremonies from this region. In this film, Mary Kemarr Morton and her kinswomen explain the meanings and significance of their songs through the narrative art of tyepety ‘sand story’. The Antarrengeny songs tell the stories of both everyday and important events: the travels of ancestral women across Antarrengeny country; the plants and animals of the area; and the impact of a land claim hearing.
Director: Mary Kemarr Morton & Katie Kemarr Morton

Antarrengeny Story is the official selection for Experiential Ethnographic Films Program of Aperture Festival to be screened on 22-23 November 2013 in Melbourne, Australia. For more information about the festival go to: aperturefestival.com
