A stunning VR experience, Australian filmmaker Lynette Wallworth’s Collisions invites audiences on a journey to the land of indigenous elder, Nyarri Nyarri Morgan and the Martu tribe in the remote Western Australian desert.

In a thought-provoking, immersive virtual reality experience, Nyarri shares his story of the dramatic collision between his traditional world view and his experience of nuclear testing in the South Australian desert.

Nyarri Nyarri Morgan’s first contact with western culture came when he witnessed an atomic explosion in the South Australian desert. Half a century later, another technology affords him the chance to show you the world that was ruptured that day.

At the invitation of Nyarri and the Martu tribe, artist Lynette Wallworth has sculpted an immersive virtual reality experience that places you at its story’s epicentre. From songs of the oldest surviving culture on the planet to drones soaring above the red desert, from projectors powered by car batteries to bombs that poison the land, this is a world that finds itself – again – teetering on a precipice of technological change that questions how we will steward it into the future.

Collisions was awarded at several international film festivals and won an Emmy Award in 2017.
