A WA-produced documentary about Malgana man Jimmy “Paddy” Poland will be shown on NITV (SBS) over the next three years.

“Shark Bay Salt Water Stories: Yarning with Jimmy” is a collection of stories looking at Jimmy’s life growing up around the Gutharraguda (Shark Bay) area over nine decades.

The film tells his stories about growing up in the Shark Bay community, how he worked as a fisherman, stockman, shearing hand, and cook, and how he learned how to carve pearl shell, emu eggs and boab nuts from his father.

The Bundiyarra people’s story of working towards recognition, the issues and obstacles that they faced was captured on film as part of the Indigenous Community Stories project.

Since the completion of the film a VIP roof top screening was held in Perth for the Bundiyarra founding members and the community to view their story on the big screen.

NITV will show the film soon and it will be available online for viewing later in the year. To hear more about the experiences of the Bundiyarra people in making the film and the VIP roof top screening click here. To learn more about the Indigenous Community Stories project visit the FTI WA website.
