Every picture has a story.
Fresh from its triumph at the Melbourne Film Festival, where it took out the inaugural Innovation award comes a film that truly is as sweet as. 15-year-old Murra’s dysfunctional home situation sees her packed off on a photo-safari through the Pilbara with three other at-risk kids. While she is initially antagonistic, Murra quickly starts to learn about country, about photography, about friendship, but most importantly about herself. There is a whole range of fresh Indigenous talent breaking out here: Jub Clerc makes a triumphant feature debut as writer/director, and Shantae Barnes-Cowan is a ready-made star. Add to the mix Mark Coles Smith (Mystery Road: Origins), Tasma Walton, and some of the most beautiful country you will ever see, and it only gets sweeter.
This screening is part of the Adelaide Film Festival Curate Your Own Festival program.
Unique in Australia, Curate Your Own Festival builds screen culture in regional towns by developing local curatorial skills. Every Festival, AFF invites four emerging regional curators to spend four days at the Festival to select films to take back to their town.
