FILM SCREENING: CLARENCE WALDEN with ALEXIS WRIGHT

Clarence Walden

Gangalidda political leader Clarence Walden is known throughout the Carpentaria region as one of the most important intellectual figureheads alive today.

In this extraordinary, confronting and at times inspiring documentary, Clarence takes us on a journey through the hardships of growing up in the 1950s and 60s on the remote Doomadgee Mission in the Gulf of Carpentaria.

His story was captured by the Writing & Society Research team, who travelled to remote Queensland to record Clarence in discussion with award-winning Indigenous writer Alexis Wright.

The documentary runs for approximately 45mins and will be followed by Clarence Walden in conversation with Alexis Wright.
