Documentary | Australia | Australian Premiere

Elements is a visually stunning and immersive cultural experience that captures the spectacular landscapes and stories of Far North Queensland and the Torres Strait Islands. Consisting of four individually mounted episodes, each chapter showcases one of the four elements – water, wind, fire and earth.

Each element is explored through the lives of the Indigenous people from Mornington Island, Saibai, Seisia, Bamaga, Dauan Island and Wujal Wujal. Elements explores the deep personal connections Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have with these four elements through country, song, dance, and spirituality.

Join the filmmakers for a Q&A after the screening.
