takayna / Tarkine
takayna / Tarkine in north west Tasmania is one of the world’s last great wild places.
Its rugged coastline has wild, windswept beaches, towering sand dunes and includes the vast National Heritage listed Western Tasmania Aboriginal Cultural Landscape. Aboriginal use of takayna dates back tens of thousands of years and continues to this day. Yet off-road vehicles are vandalising this landscape, cutting tracks through the heart of these irreplaceable Aboriginal heritage sites.
The Bob Brown Foundation and the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre engaged Rummin to make a short film and provide photography and production support for their campaign to protect aboriginal heritage sites.
