Director Statement

This film piece came about by chance when I was filming about his painting practice. On one of many trips out to country, which is also always about hunting. I suddenly found myself careering across open bush on the trail of Marlu (Kangaroo). What unfolds is really a 'how to' on preparing and cooking Marlu. A rarely documented practice, which I was honoured to be part of.
Timo Hogan is from the remote community of Tjuntjuntjara in the Great Victoria Desert of Western Australia and is a senior law man.
