An Aboriginal History of Land Rights in Victoria
Yarnin was conceived by Bobby Nicholls, Rebecca McLean and John Harding and is produced in conjunction with Open Channel.
The aim of Yarnin is to record audio-visual history whilst training a new generation of Indigenous filmmakers and journalists.
This is the first time Aboriginal Land Rights in Victoria has been fully explored in a concise and detailed media project.
Yarnin is a mobile training program travelling throughout Victoria working with local Aboriginal communities to record their history of Land Rights from an insider’s perspective.
The program records detailed interviews from which short documentaries are produced and screened online, and on other platforms.
Yarnin has so far completed production in Yorta Yorta country (Greater Shepparton – 2012) and Gunditjmara Kirrae country (Warrnambool – 2012) as well as Wamba Wamba (Swan Hill – 2013), Wadi Wadi (Kerang – 2013), Yiti Yiti (Balranald – 2013) and Gippsland 2014.

Yarnin is supported by Film Victoria and the Ministry for the Arts.
