Mood Ring is a feature film by performance artist Sereima Adimate/Stelly G, Kiki Oner and Garden Reflexxx. The group examines female friendships, the idea of ‘love letters’, the challenge of unpacking heritage and the meaning of going home. In the ineffable shadow of taboo, Mood Ring is a radical sign of deliverance.
In 2021 the group started a writer’s room brainstorming ideas of ‘First Times’. It led them to Mood Ring; a community funded project based in/on Fiji. The footage features moments from the location reconnaissance Sereima went on in early 2022.
In a tangled visual poem that blends journal entries with travelogue, Kiki Oner and best friend Stelly G return to their island home Viti Levu. During this – their first trip together as adults – they make contact with a past that is unfamiliar to them yet shrouded in memories. What follows is a deeply felt trip that forces them to confront lives almost lived. Head to one of three screenings at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre to experience beautifully crafted scenes of confronting pasts and catastrophic futures.
