Manganna is our language name for Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo, it is also the name of our Mountain and the name of one of the last tribal warriors of lunawunna alonnah, Bruny Island.
Brody Michael Manganna was born at the base of this mountain and grew up surrounded by the call of these majestic birds. The Manganna’s fly down from the Mountain warning us that rain is approaching. They also carry the alarm that the logging has started.
The short film relates Brody’s affiliation with the land and sea, following as he and his friends collect tucka andsearch to find ways to stop the logging of his precious birth Country under the guidance offered by the Manganna’s Calling.
A passionate adventure of discovery both internally and externally.
