The documentary Zugub, the mask, the spirits and the stars takes us on a journey into the mind, heart and eye of artist Alick Tipoti, a member of the Maluyligal people of Zenadth Kes.
A powerful interpreter of his culture, in this film Alick leads a journey through his creative life as printmaker, mask maker, songster and choreographer.
"My art is based on legends of the Torres Strait where I depict my interpretations of the land, the sea, the sky, and the many different living creatures and spirits that exist here - as with other artists, I use my art as an educational tool, teaching people about important cultural events, practices and beliefs from the past." - Alick Tipoti
