Exhibitions on Screen: Djeran Sunset

Djeran, a significant time in the Noongar seasonal calendar, heralds the cooler months. This period is characterised by a noticeable change in the weather and winds, with lighter breezes predominantly coming from the south. Djeran is marked by the blossoming of red flowers, notably the vivid red flowering gum and the delicate blooms of the summer flame tree.

In celebration of this season, the City of Perth urban screens showcase two Slow TV feature documentaries: The Colours of Djeran and Djeran Sunset, bathing the city’s urban heart in the hues and vistas of the season.

Captured by the serene waters of Dgilgie (Manning Lake), these documentaries spotlight the season’s emblematic red-capped gum and Tuart trees alongside calming Djeran sunsets over Derbal Nara (Cockburn Sound). 

The soothing imagery is complemented by insightful information from the KURONGKURL KATITJIN section of the ECU website.

Slow TV, known for its unhurried portrayal of life’s rhythms, presents an uncut, real-time journey into the heart of its subjects. The genre invites viewers to slow down and savour the moment, providing a peaceful respite from the fast-paced media landscape. This celebration of Djeran’s tranquil beauty and rich colours is no exception, offering a unique opportunity to connect with nature’s pace and aesthetic.

The colours of Djeran and Djeran Sunset screen are displayed daily throughout Djeran, illuminating the Northbridge Piazza  with the serene and lush palette of the season.

 Djeran Sunset Screens Daily at 6 pm
