Wash My Soul in the River’s Flow - Special Screening

By popular demand, and in respect for the late Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter, Sunshine Coast Council is proud to support the screening of this film in Nambour as part of the Sunshine Coast Film Festival.

As you watch you will be transported into a world of imagery, music and stories that reach deep into your soul to understand the profound effect of government policy on First Nations people.

‘This beautiful film is in every way a memorable experience’ ~ David Straton The Australian.

Wash My Soul in the River’s Flow is a feature documentary about the lives and love story of Ruby Hunter and Archie Roach, as told in their own songs and stories in the 2004 concert Kura Tungar - Songs from the River. Images of the country and the Murray River flow throughout the film, featuring the Ngarrindjeri lands in South Australia, the birthplace and home of Hunter before she was stolen. Seventeen years later working with Archie Roach, filmmaker Philippa Bateman has crafted a film, which cinematically brings alive the emotional, spiritual and physical reality of Hunter’s country, her and Archie’s connection to it, as well as the pull of memory and the joy of coming home.

A film best seen on the big screen.

Please be aware this film shows images of deceased First Nations people.
