Firestarter explores the loss and reclaiming of culture, the burden of intergenerational trauma and crucially, the extraordinary power of art as a messenger for social change and healing.

Marking Bangarra Dance Theatre’s 30th anniversary, Firestarter: The Story of Bangarra is a captivating documentary that tells the story of Stephen, David and Russell Page – three young Aboriginal brothers who turned a newly born dance group into one of Australia’s leading performing arts companies.

Directed by Wayne Blair (The Sapphires, Top End Wedding) and Nel Minchin (Matilda & Me), this poignant documentary has already won multiple awards, including the AACTA-Award for Best Documentary.
