Cowboy Loy Pwerle, traditional “boss” of Mosquito Bore and Arlparra, Utopia, in the Northern Territory, is worried about his grandson, who is seemingly lost to the perils of urban life in Port Augusta. Jermiah has been living in Port Augusta for seven years and has missed Men’s Business. Cowboy travels from Utopia to implore Jermiah to change his ways and return to Country and his traditional culture. Will Jermiah heed his grandfather’s words, return to Utopia to become a man under Tribal Law and take his place? If so, will it be enough to turn his life around?

Directed by CHARMAINE INGRAM

Filmmakers in attendance | World Premiere

Set in Wurrumiyanga, on the Tiwi Islands, this half hour documentary follows patrollers Janey Puautjimi and Camilla Timaepatua as they work through the night to ensure that the local kids are off the streets by 9pm and ready for school the next day. It’s a tough job as there are many distractions. Card games and mobile phones can keep kids up past their bedtime. When a 12-year old girl starts skipping class, Nilus Vigona from the school attendance strategy team – also known as the “yellow shirt mob” – enlists the help of the patrollers to locate the teenager. Set amidst the vibrant culture of Island life, with its Football carnivals and Catholic influences we witness firsthand how these remarkable local leaders sacrifice time with their own families to nurture the next generation of Tiwi leaders. A small community with a big heart, the people of Wurrumiyanga value family and safety. Tayamangajirri is a story of looking out for each other with people like Janey, Camilla and Nilus inspiring and engaging the community’s next generation of leaders.
