DevelopingEM has secured the rights to screen DJÄKAMIRR, a film describing a unique birthing on country program during the First Nations Healthcare tracks of DevelopingEM 2022.

Filmed in remote Arnhem Land, DJÄKAMIRR follows Ḻäwurrpa and Sarah on a unique journey through ancestral time, country and culture.

As mutual trust develops between the two women, they hope to empower Yolŋu and reclaim 60,000 years of birthing culture from the stronghold of Western medicine.

This is their story of working with community to pilot the training of djäkamirr- the caretakers of pregnancy and birth.
