Ella( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ella Havelka is the first Indigenous dancer to be invited into The Australian Ballet. Ella's introduction to dance began at the Dubbo Ballet Studio and with the help of scholarships and hand-me-down tutus, she quickly started winning local Eisteddfods and was soon dancing six days a week. In 2009, after four years of training in The Australian Ballet School in Melbourne, Ella joined Bangarra, the Sydney-based Indigenous dance company, where she learnt not only the very different rigours of contemporary dance, but began a powerful and moving journey of self-discovery into her Indigenous heritage. It was not until 2012 when Bangarra did a joint performance with The Australian Ballet - Warumuk - in the dark night - that the call of the ballet was re-ignited within Ella. She accepted an offer to become the first Indigenous dancer to join The Australian Ballet in its 50 year history. The film follows Ella as she faces the challenges of adapting back to being en pointe after four years of barefoot dancing with Bangarra, and we see her face fierce competition for roles. We also go with The Australian Ballet on tour to China where Ella dances in Graeme Murphy's celebrated interpretation of Swan Lake in Beijing. Woven throughout the film is a moving personal journey back to Ella's roots. Guided by her mother, Ella begins to reconnect with her Indigenous culture, hearing Wiradjuri language, engaging in basket weaving with Elders and visiting the gravesites of her people for the first time. She also explores her childhood. Both Ella and Janna give intimate accounts of the circumstances surrounding her birth, for Ella never knew her father, even though he lived in the same town. However, after his death Ella was given a scrapbook of clippings that he had kept, painstakingly documenting her whole career. She feels now that he was, and always is, with her. Ultimately, we follow Ella as she finds her own unique form of expression through dance, choreographing her own work. Using a blend of Bangarra's contemporary Indigenous styles and traditional western ballet, Ella finally expresses herself in her own distinctive way. ELLA was directed by Douglas Watkin, an exciting Indigenous filmmaker from Queensland making his first long-form documentary after 20 years in television."
Fairweather man : an intimate portrait of one of Australia's greatest painters( Visual )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An intimate portrait of the life and work of one of Australia's greatest painters. When Ian Fairweather died in 1974, Australia not only lost an extraordinary artist but one of its greatest eccentrics. However, the reclusive, driven artist left behind a wonderful legacy - a body of marvellous paintings that today are highly collectible and hang on the walls of galleries around the world. The film embarks on two journeys: one is the story of Fairweather's life and travels; the other a journey deep into the heart and soul of the man and his work. Scottish-born Fairweather was abandoned as a child, setting him on a lifelong path of self-sought solitude. After active service in World War I, contrary to his conservative family's wishes, he chose art as his vocation. When he arrived in China, the first stop in a lifetime of wandering, he found a culture that would have an overriding and lifelong influence on his art. At 60 years of age, Fairweather experienced a turning point in his work. He built himself a flimsy raft and set sail from Darwin on a foolhardy, death-defying trip across the Timor Sea. For 16 days he drifted in a semi-conscious and hallucinogenic state. It is said that before that journey he was an extremely talented artist, but afterwards he became an extraordinary one. For the last 20 years of his life Fairweather stopped travelling and made himself a home on Bribie Island, off the coast of Queensland. There he lived a hermit-like existence in a primitive grass hut devoid of any creature comforts. And it was there that he created his greatest work." -- EnhanceTV website
