AWAVENA
A Virtual Reality film by Lynette Wallworth - Australian Premiere

Awavena is the true story of the radical gender reconfiguration of the Amazonian Yawanawa tribe, led by their first female Shaman Hushahu.

Director Lynette Wallworth collaborated with the Indigenous story tellers of the Yawanawa tribe to create Awavena, using cutting edge VR technology to create the next generation of VR and mixed reality non-fiction experience. This immersive VR experience is designed to take two visitors at a time on a virtual journey into the spirit world, capturing fluorescent specimens in previously unseen colours from the forest world, experienced in VR.

Following a successful premiere at Sundance Film Festival in early 2018, and Venice International Film Festival last month, the film’s Australian Premiere will be presented at Carriageworks.

THE EXPERIENCE TAKES 30 MINS, SELECT THE DATE YOU WISH TO ATTEND AND THEN 'REGISTER' TO SELECT YOUR ENTRY TIME.
