KANALARITJA AN UNBROKEN STORY
DIRECTOR STEVE THOMAS 
DOC SHORT • 27:45 MINUTES • AUSTRALIA

An Unbroken String tells the story of Tasmanian Aboriginal shell stringing, a story of survival and resilience. For the first time, historic necklaces and images, works from the Furneaux Islands and contemporary works from a new wave of Tasmanian Aboriginal shell stringers appear in a new exhibition that celebrates hundreds of generations of tradition. We are guided on this rich journey by a group of senior shell stringers as they pass the practise on to a new generation.
