About the film

INFRACTIONS connects stories of Queensland 'unconventional' gas approvals on Gooreng Gooreng country to global shale gas plans potentially affecting 50% of the Northern Territory. The film was made following the lifting of the moratorium on fracking in NT.

It features Dimakarri ‘Ray’ Dixon (Mudburra), Jack Green (Garawa, Gudanji), Gadrian Hoosan (Garrwa, Yanyuwa), Robert O’Keefe (Wambaya), Juliri Ingra and Neola Savage (Gooreng Gooreng), Que Kenny (Western Arrarnta), Cassie Williams (Western Arrarnta), the Sandridge Band, and Professor Irene Watson (Tanganekald, Meintangk Bunganditj) who was involved in drafting the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The settler artist/writer Rachel O'Reilly works in Meanjin (Brisbane) and Berlin and grew up on Gooreng Gooreng country in Yallarm/Gladstone. Commissioned by KW Berlin, Germany.

This screening will take place on Djiru Country and is part of Blue Assembly, UQ Art Museum's multi-year program exploring our relationship with the ocean, it's adjacent places and other waters. It is supported through the Kinnane UQ Art Endowment. The artist’s screening fee will be split with frontline activists.
