[M] Infrequent coarse language | Documentary | 87 minutes
Yolngu warrior, shaman and father Djalu Gurruwiwi, with some help from global pop star Gotye, must find a way to bring two worlds together to save his culture.
Djalu Gurruwiwi, an ageing Yolngu elder and master Yidaki (didgeridoo) player, is a custodian of his people’s ancient Songlines that have stored his clan’s Knowledge, Culture and Country since the birth of time. But Djalu is running out of time to pass on these Songlines, entrusted to him for the future of his people. His sons and community, struggling to come to terms with the consequences of colonisation, are lost. When Djalu breaks with tradition in an effort to save the Songlines, world-famous musician Gotye becomes an unexpected family member and helps amplify the songs to the world.
Director Ben Strunin spent more than five years documenting Djalu’s journey, which ultimately manifests as one of his oldest Creation stories – the Wititj Songline that tells of two different serpents speaking together to maintain balance in the cycle of life. Supported by the MIFF Premiere Fund, the resulting film showcases this meeting of two worlds, where Western pop and Indigenous sacred songs become a common language used to transcend barriers.

The Little Mermaid, visionary filmmaker Rob Marshall’s live-action reimagining of the studio’s Oscar®-winning animated musical classic, opens exclusively in cinemas May 25, 2023. The Little Mermaid is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.

The Little Mermaid is directed by Oscar® nominee Rob Marshall (“Chicago,” “Mary Poppins Returns”), and produced by two-time Emmy® winner Marc Platt (“Jesus Christ Superstar Live in 2 Concert,” “Grease Live!”), three-time Tony Award® winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “In the Heights”), Emmy winner John DeLuca (“Tony Bennett: An American Classic”), and Rob Marshall, with Jeffrey Silver (“The Lion King”) serving as executive producer. The songs feature music from multiple Academy Award® winner Alan Menken (“Beauty and the Beast,” “Aladdin”) and lyrics by Howard Ashman, who together won two Oscars for the music in the animated “The Little Mermaid,” and new lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The score is by Alan Menken, with music supervised and produced by Mike Higham (“Mary Poppins Returns,” “Into the Woods”).

The Euroa Civic Centre Hall previously acted as a cinema (The Euroa Civic Theatre), until it ceased operation in the early 1980s. Given the relatively limited entertainment opportunities, particularly for children and youth within Euroa and the wider district, the idea of restoring the Euroa Civic Theatre to its former glory was born.
Council received State Government funding from the Regional Arts Infrastructure Allocation – Regional Cinemas Program to upgrade the hall. The total cost of the project was approximately $80,000 which was co-funded by Council and the government on a dollar-for-dollar basis. After a lot of hard work by community members and Council staff, the Euroa Community Cinema was opened in November 2003.
Initially films were shown once every month, however screenings increased after sufficient demand. The cinema has now transitioned to a digital format and screens movies Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons, with additional screenings throughout the year.
