Giving Voice: Lior, Lou Bennett & Nigel Westlake

Ngapa William Cooper came out of a rich collaboration between composer Nigel Westlake, singer-songwriter Lior, and performer and academic Dr Lou Bennett, exploring the story of Yorta Yorta activist William Cooper. In 1938 William Cooper led the Australian Aborigines’ League through the streets of Melbourne in the only non-Jewish protest worldwide against the events of Kristallnacht in Nazi Germany. In this short doc Nigel, Lior and Lou give an insight into creating this important and moving work.
