Adapted from the Bangarra production of the same name, Spear interprets a young man’s journey into adulthood and prophesies the many 'types' of indigenous male he can become in contemporary Australian society.

 

The film offers a new look at indigenous representation on screen and bold ways of imagining dance as a cinematic storytelling device. It features Hunter Page-Lochard and Aaron Pedersen as the leads, with cinematography by the award-winning Bonnie Elliot.
