(Australia 2015 – Dir: Stephen Page. English 84 mins. PG)
A young man reconciles ancient tradition with the modern, urban world in this debut feature from Stephen Page, artistic director of Australia’s renowned Bangarra Dance Theatre. This visually arresting film works through gesture and dance to follow a young man named Djali from the Australian outback to the streets of Sydney on his quest to understand what it means to be a man with ancient traditions in a modern world. Despite the fragmentation of Indigenous cultures, it is in the complex interconnection between places that Djali will ultimately discover his own power — a power linking past, present, and future.
"What a spectacular achievement; what a strikingly original piece of work.... a vial of dark and beautiful magic – on every front, an exhilarating achievement." (Guardian)
