Film about Mingaletta Aunties premieres this week

Minagaletta Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporation will celebrate Naidoc Week this week with the premiere screening of a film The Aunties of Mingaletta.

The two-hour film describes the struggles of women elders through the Stolen Generation, domestic violence, rapes and other tragedies.

The film explains how these women from many homelands all ultimately ended up on the Central Coast, where they found and joined Mingaletta.

Mingaletta chief executive Ms Dianne O'Brien said the documentary was commissioned from a Central Coast Council grant.

She said it was conceived in last year's Naidoc Week as an attempt to preserve the stories, both personal and cultural, of the women known as "Aunties".

"The Aunties continue to give back their time and energy working to provide ongoing community services, particularly by educating our next generation," Ms O'Brien said.

"They believe in the sanctity of Aboriginal lore and culture, and are committed unconditionally through the wisdom and generosity of their thoughts, words and deeds."

The premiere is being introduced by Australia's first female Aboriginal federal MP Linda Burney and will be shown on Friday, July 12, to invited guests and the public is invited to join them at no cost.

The two hour film starts at 11am and is part of events at 6 Sydney Ave, Umina Beach, from 10am to 3pm, including dancing, face-painting, basket weaving, music and information stalls.
