Interview: Zach’s Ceremony

November 23, 2016
Director, Aaron Petersen, associate producer, Alec Doomadgee, and main focus, Zach Doomadgee, chat to FilmInk about the excellent indigenous doco, Zach's Ceremony, which is screening at The Brisbane Asia Pacific Film Festival.

Growing up isn’t easy, especially for Zach who is rapidly making the transition from boyhood to manhood, in both the modern world and his ancient culture. Pressures from his loving, but staunch father, the temptations of city life and the ever present spectre of racism all take their toll. Ultimately Zach must embrace the traditions and knowledge of his ancestors and awaken the warrior within.

Zach’s Ceremony screens at The Brisbane Asia Pacific Film Festival on Saturday, December 3 at 12:30pm. For all ticketing, venue, and session details, head to the official website.

    Your last sentence is profound. The elders and ancestors have the power to ‘awaken’, if we listen and surrender. Then the warrior comes to fight our battles from the inside……..with divine strength! Fantastic, well done.
