Directed by one of Australia’s most accomplished creatives, Stephen Page, and inspired by Bruce Pascoe’s award winning book of the same name, Dark Emu explores the vital life force of flora and fauna and challenges the ‘hunter-gatherer’ myth of pre-colonial Aboriginal Australians.
Stephen Page says Dark Emu is a creative and emotional response to Bruce Pascoe’s non-fiction account of the sophisticated farming, fishing and land care practices used by the Aboriginal people across the continent before the disruption of European settlement.
