Quenten Agius (pictured) and Kim Mavromatis

Co-Directors / Co-Producers

We have been working together for over 14 years on a number of Aboriginal films, art, tourism, heritage and other projects. Between us, we have won 88 global, international, national and state awards.

Our previous 2 major documentaries, Sacred Ground (2007 ABC / 2010 NITV) and King’s Seal (2014 NITV), Aboriginal stories funded by Screen Australia and South Australian Film Corp, took 11 years to produce and have won many global, international and national awards.

Sharing Culture is one of the first films we've produced with a drone.

Director Statement

"For 100,000 years the old people have handed down creation stories, with creation stories come connection to country, and out of the stories come song, with song comes ceremony that we are handing down to our next generation. Our stories are written in the land - me and the animal got lore - me and the plant got lore - me and the insect got lore - to look after one another"....Quenten Agius
