possum skin cloak

“This documentary follows the journey of Aboriginal children in Melbourne as they learn about the southeast Australian Aboriginal cultural practice of creating possum skin cloaks. The children create two cloaks through a series of workshops under the guidance of Keerray Woorrroong artist Vicky Couzens, Wiradjari and Yorta Yorta Elder Aunty Esther Kirby and Maree Clarke. Hear the children talk about what they have learnt and what the project means to them as we follow them over the five months it takes to complete the two cloaks.”
