Screening of the film "Namatjira Project" followed by a panel discussion at the Australian Embassy in Paris

Namatjira Project is an Australian documentary film directed by Big hART starring the Namatjira family, released in Australia in August 2017.

Deeply moving and praised for its sense of collaboration and generosity, the film documents the iconic story of the Namatjira family, tracing their quest to reclaim the copyrights to their grandfather's works, from the remote Australian desert to the opulence of Buckingham Palace.

  • Alex Kelly – Australian director and producer, representing Big hART
  • Greta Morton-Elangué – Director of the Australian Aboriginal Film Festival
  • Georges Petitjean – Curator, writer and researcher, specialist in Australian indigenous art
  • Solenne Ducos-Lamotte – Director of IDAIA (moderator)
