Dragon Dreaming – the Life and Art of Kushia Young, is a documentary about a young, deaf, Indigenous artist from remote Kalka in APY Lands, as she prepares for her first public exhibition. Produced by Ninti Media and broadcast on ICTV, Dragon Dreaming examines Kushia’s unique artistry, combining elements of traditional Indigenous arts practice with mythical Asian subject matters, while navigating isolation, disability and cultural integration.
This beautiful example of Indigenous storytelling was awarded the Open Entrant Documentary Judges Choice at the 2015 Focus on Ability Short Film Festival, and nominated for Best Documentary at the 2016 South Australian Screen Awards.
