What's it all about?

A young man (Waangenga Blanco) reconciles his people's ancient traditions with the modern world in this debut feature from Stephen Page, artistic director of Australia’s renowned Bangarra Dance Theatre.

Tell me more (don't worry, no spoilers)

This visually arresting film works through gesture and dance as it follows a young man named Djali (Waangenga Blanco) from the Australian outback to the streets of Sydney.

Djali has one quest: to understand what it means to be a man with ancient traditions in an urban, 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.
