REVIEW The film Star Dreaming was shown in Geraldton under a temporary dome during last week’s Shore Leave festival, taking viewers on an immersive 180-degree journey learning about the stars through science and Yamatji culture. The experience, which ran from April 28 to 30, educated viewers on Western Australia’s Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project, offering information about the world’s biggest telescope project to be built in the Murchison. As many people in the Mid West may be aware, the traditional owners of the Yamatji land signed a deal to house the ground-breaking technology in the area. The graphic imagery of constellations drawn and Aboriginal artworks coming together around me was breathtaking and informative, and I watched heads turn to follow the animations from the corner of my eye. On screen, two children are taken through the stars and shown two different perspectives from western scientists and Yamatji Aboriginal traditions. At the end of the film they come to the conclusion that despite the two versions of history, there is only one shared night sky. When Indigenous Australians pass down their stories and art from generation to generation, we can see science through a raw, traditional lens. The Star Dreaming movie discusses Aboriginal Australians connection to the sky and how stars were a tool to navigate across the land. The Big Emu in the sky story moved through animation drawings that helped to visualise the constellation and meaning to Yamatji people. Describing the Milky Way as the shape of the Big Emu, the outline appeared, and showed that depending on the direction of the emu, the sky could indicate the best time to hunt for “good tucker”. Combining western science and Indigenous storytelling and paintings, this visual experience gives its viewer an appreciation of astronomy and understanding of our night sky. Incorporating the Big Bang Theory and the future of science through the SKA telescope, what is witnessed in this immersive viewing is a fusion of colour, animation and information that will not be easily forgotten.
