This year’s short film is called 'Ochre and Ink'. The film tells the story of Chinese artist Zhou Xiaoping and his inspiring 23 year collaboration with Aboriginal artists in outback Australia.
With elements of humour, controversy and tragedy, this film follows Xiaoping as he develops from an enthusiastic but naive young man into an engaging and passionate character who established genuine friendships with many Aboriginal people.
