Kimberley Coronavirus Animation

[ You need to allow cookies on our site, to be able to see this video / embeded content. ]

Watch this beautiful animation raising awareness about the dangers of Coronavirus spreading among the Aboriginal population in the Kimberley region in Australia. Aboriginal people are among the most vulnerable due to effects of ongoing colonization in Australia. They are in great danger if the virus spreads among them.

Together with her partner and our friend Chris Griffiths and others, our Memefest friend, comrade and collaborator Alana Hunt has been working on this wonderful animation, which is now spreading like a little virus round the globe.

It is a strong and beautiful piece of art. Watch it, share it and discuss it.
It is crucial we maintain existing and establish new relations for dialogue. This virus is not just a public health issue!


Produced, directed and edited by Bernadette Trench-Thiedeman in collaboration with Nirrumbuk Environmental Health & Services (Pty Ltd) Chris Griffiths and Alana Hunt and Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services
