Lywemp-lywempek arety-alhek

Lywemp-lywemp is a bush ‘cosmetic’. When you mix it with water and wash your hair with it, it makes your hair grow long and shiny. Going looking for lywemp-lywemp’ was directed, shot and edited by young women from Utopia. It was their first film for the Utopia Bush Medicine Project project.
Intergenerational group consultations directed primarily by senior knowledge holders were held to ascertain an appropriate topic for the young women to work with for their first foray into language documentation.
A short text in Anmatyerr was negotiated by the older women, who are more experienced in language work. And the young women worked with a media trainer to storyboard it.
