Rydin’ Time (2005)


A documentary about three Indigenous rodeo riders, Kaleb Comollatti, Dallas McNamara, and John Stacey who ride at the Mt Isa Rodeo in 2005.

Rydin’ Time is part of the Nganampa Anwernekenhe series produced by Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association (CAAMA) Productions. Nganampa Anwernekenhe means 'ours’ in the Pitjantjatjara and Arrernte lanuages, and the series aims to contribute to the preservation of Indigenous languages and cultures.

Curator’s notes

An observational style documentary intercut with interviews to camera. The energetic soundtrack creates a youthful, lively narrative true to the documentary’s subjects. Rydin’ Time is about the passion of three young men, and their effervescent dreams of youth.
