Out of the Pilbara desert in Western Australia, an unlikely group of 11-year olds create the world’s first Aboriginal interactive comic book, NEOMAD. How do we get to Space? captures the arguments, pranks, computer wizardry, and the grand fantastical vision as the young artists battle to create themselves as the heroes of their own epic sci-fi adventure – Meet the real Love Punks and Satellite Sisters from Roebourne!

How Do We Get To Space? is a short documentary that has emerged out of the Yijala Yala Project. Director and editor Chynna Campbell has been living in Roebourne and working with the community on the Yijala Yala Project since 2011. Chynna has created many short films for the project but How Do We Get To Space? is her first half-hour documentary. The film was awarded best documentary (short form) at the 2014 ATOM Awards.

How Do We Get To Space? will begin to make its way to screens around Australia and the world over the next twelve months. Keep in touch with the latest news on our Facebook and Twitter!
