Storm Boy

Henri Safran, 88 mins, Australia, 1976.

Based on Colin Thiele's novel, this Australian classic focuses on a boy living an isolated existence with his father.

The strong bonds he develops with an orphaned pelican and with Fingerbone Bill (David Gulpilil) open the boy's eyes to his surroundings and Indigenous Australians.

A brief discussion accompanying this screening will examine how the filmmakers have explored issues of race, ecology, law and ownership.
