Retirement home celebrates NAIDOC
REGENCY Park Retirement Village residents celebrated NAIDOC week their own way last week.
The retirees took a cinematic approach towards recognising Australia's indigenous cultures by screening the Australian film Bran Nue Dae.
The film is an upbeat musical account of a young indigenous boy's journey in the late 1960s, featuring the likes of Geoffrey Rush, Missy Higgins, Jessica Mauboy and Ernie Dingo.
Regency Park assistant manager Noo Shepherd said the screening was the retirement village's way of acknowledging Australia's indigenous past.
“It's a form of our residents embracing the NAIDOC celebrations and the indigenous culture,” she said.
Each month Regency Park residents have the opportunity to get together for a movie night, embracing the cinematic experience with all the traditional features from the big screen down to the humble Jaffa.
The screening was one of the last celebrations of NAIDOC week in the area as the week wrapped up on Saturday.
