Stephen Page • 2015 • 1h 24m • Australia •



In this breathtaking and visually mesmerizing film, first-time feature director and celebrated choreographer Stephen Page and his Sydney-based Bangarra Dance Theatre come together to tell the story of Djali, a young Indigenous man who sets off on a journey of initiation and understanding of what it means to balance ancient tradition with the modern, urban world.


Seamlessly weaving dance and story this cinematic journey begins with his birth and follows him as he enters the complicated and often painful world of a colonial Australia’s turbulent and violent past, which resulted in a desperate present day. In this richly layered film, we become witness to Djali’s struggle to find his place as he awakens the powerful spiritual guiding force within him.
