The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) is proud to have taken part in the production of the documentary film, kanalaritja: An Unbroken String, which had its Tasmanian premiere in Hobart last night.

Produced in partnership with Tasmanian production company Roar Film, kanalaritja: An Unbroken String tells the story of Tasmanian Aboriginal shell stringing.

The film marks the first collaboration between TMAG and Screen Tasmania to foster the creation and development of documentaries that explore the quintessentially unique stories of Tasmania, its culture and its history.

The luna tunapri workshops, funded by the Tasmanian Government through Arts Tasmania and in partnership with the Australia Council’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Board, informed the development of the kanalaritja: An Unbroken String exhibition.

This significant collaboration which draws on experience right across Tasmania’s cultural and creative industries and the Tasmanian Aboriginal community.

The exhibition is currently on show at TMAG until Sunday 21 May, before touring around Australia until 2019.  

A DVD of the documentary is now available to purchase at TMAG’s Museum Shop, and will also be available at each touring location. Viewers can also watch the film via Vimeo On Demand (fees apply).
