490 1 The CAAMA collection
518 Originally produced by Ronin Films in 2005.
520 The Saint Teresa Church stands proudly in the Aboriginal
community of Ltyentye Apurte, a township of 500 people,
80km south-east of Alice Springs. This is a Catholic
Church like no other. Agnes Palmer, an Arrernte woman,
grew up in a Catholic Mission and as an adult felt that
she had been given a story to tell about God and the
Creation. She became a driving force in a project to paint
the bare white walls of the community church. In 2002, a
professional artist, Cait Wait, was brought in to help
train a group of women who were interested in painting the
walls. The women overcame their initial shyness and fears
and through prayer and the singing of hymns, found the
inspiration to paint. From floor to ceiling, all of the
walls were covered with colourful paintings of the story
of Jesus, mixed with the wildlife and landscapes from the
area, and images of Aboriginal people. The work not only
gave the women strength and pride but also inspired the
community and visitors to the Church. The intention of the
painting was spiritual, with the aspiration of helping
people to share the story and the art with kids in trouble
and with others to inspire them. In the words of Agnes at
the end of this beautiful film: "I'm telling you mob this
story, this big story. Now it's up to you mob to make
things right. Because we got a lot of good things to do
and I can't do it by myself."
