Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Louise Alling­ham

Whim Creek Ho­tel is host­ing a week­end filled with laugh­ter, en­ter­tain­ment and movies.

This Fri­day, four films from the In­dige­nous Com­mu­nity Sto­ries pro­gram will be screened and on Satur­day there will be a show­ing of 10 short com­edy movies from the Rev­e­la­tion Perth In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val.

Brenda’s Story: The Jour­ney of Lois Ol­ney, Leg­endary Ny­oon­gar War­rior, Waringarri Artists and Ji­na­m­agu Yirdiyawa Ngur­radamu will be screened on the Fri­day night and tell in­cred­i­ble sto­ries about the stolen gen­er­a­tion, an in­dige­nous army ser­vice­man and tra­di­tional Abo­rig­i­nal art that has been passed down through thou­sands of gen­er­a­tions.

The movies are part of Screenwest and Film and Tele­vi­sion Inc WA’s project to tell 100 in­dige­nous com­mu­nity sto­ries by 2017.

Au­di­ences are in for a laugh on Satur­day as 10 short com­edy films are screened and Kath and Kim star Peter Row­sthorn en­ter­tains with a live per­for­mance. The free event will screen come­dies from the USA, UK and Australia that were part of the highly ac­claimed Rev­e­la­tion Perth In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val.

The movies are not rated, but may be un­suit­able for chil­dren un­der the age of 15.

Ac­com­mo­da­tion is avail­able for both nights.
