We Don’t Need a Map – Film screening success

This NAIDOC week, Hearts For Arts Law (HFAL) partnered with the Colin Biggers & Paisley Foundation to host an exclusive screening of Warwick Thornton’s thought-provoking documentary We Don’t Need a Map. Ticket sales raised over $2000 for Arts Law and our Artists in the Black service. A few lucky viewers also won signed copies of the We Don’t Need a Map movie poster.

Tamara Sims, Head of Pro Bono Colin Biggers & Paisley, facilitated a Q&A with producer Brendan Fletcher and tattoo artist Les Rice after the screening. Brendan and Les gave us a fascinating insight into the production, detailed how the film came together and shared the unusual origin stories of a few of Les’s tattoos. Where do tattoos fit into a documentary about history, country and constellations? Well, you’ll just have to watch the film and find out.

Arts Law would like to thank the Hearts For Arts Law committee for their hard work putting this event together, the Colin Biggers & Paisley Foundation for their generous sponsorship and Brendan Fletcher and Les Rice for giving up their time.
