LOOKY LOOKY HERE COMES COOKY
in-cinema world premiere with post-screening Q&A with director STEVEN MCGREGOR.
A fresh, funny and provocative look at the Cook legend from a First Nations' perspective. We debunk the myth Cook “discovered” Australia. Looky Looky Here Comes Cooky features a specially created songline that travels across the country. The film creates a songline for 21st century Australia - of spirituality, connection to country, resistance and survival.
Six diverse and distinctive new commissions in Indigenous Language and English come together to create a new songline – one of cultural resistance and survival.
The film features outstanding Indigenous music producer Daniel Rankine P.K.A. Trials (founding member of AB Original) as well as Indigenous singer/songwriters Mo’Ju, Alice Skye, Kev Carmody, Birdz, Fred Leone and Mau Power, a diverse group of performers known for their powerful music and political voice.
The weaver of the story is outstanding poet and performer – Steven Oliver. He connects the songline as he travels the land interrogating Cook’s legacy, and revealing Indigenous perspectives of the mysterious Cooky. His question- in the year 2020, does Australia have a blurred history of Cook?
