An Old Fella teaches a Young Fella there are more ways than one to heal the spirit.
Ward One is a film that highlights a young Aboriginal man’s struggle with mental health. Mental health issues are rarely talked about in Aboriginal communities and often misunderstood.
Within Central Australian Aboriginal culture, a Ngangkari is a cultural doctor. They are highly revered in both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities. Part of their healing practices deals with sicknesses that are unseen (mental health), focusing on the power of the mind to heal the body.
