Noongar Boodja is a documentary film made by young Aboriginal people from Albany. This stunning cinematic story explores with Elders of Wagyl Kaip, significant places and the culture behind their Noongar names.

The public screening received a standing ovation from 700 people and since the screening there has been a wave of support for dual place naming, which was argued strongly by Elders in the film. Deep engagement between Elders and young people during the filmmaking process has encouraged ongoing connections and further creative projects within Albany.
