Bran Nue Dae

Michele:

“The film Bran Nue Dae was the big winner at… [this year’s] Deadly Awards, which celebrate Indigenous achievements in entertainment, music, sport and the community.

“The Deadlys deliver a strong and healthy message to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community – that, hopefully, is an inspiration to young Indigenous Australians, indeed Indigenous Australians across the country.” (SBS reporting on 28th September 2010 here)

This newly-released production is highly entertaining and it presents a fascinating glimpse of life for Australian Indigenous people. With the ‘big name’ actor Geoffrey Rush, the issues it raises will be taken to the wider world and it is to be hoped that the film will have a positve impact, challenging and changing people’s perceptions.

    What a fantastic project…I absolutely loved ‘Bran Nue Dae’…loved all the characters, the plot, the ‘play’ genre, and especially the ‘good feeling’ it leaves you with. Brilliantly touches on history and brings up issues of inequality still affecting Australian Aboriginal people and thier culture. A proud and inspiring movie 🙂
