A joyous feature film adaptation of the much loved (and much awarded) 1990 stage musical by Jimmy Chi. This film delighted audiences of all ages on its release with its infectious music and exuberant storytelling.
‘Bran Nue Dae is a beacon light in Aboriginal and Australian cultural history. The musical and the film both introduced Australian audiences to new visions of Aboriginal theatre and film as innovative, exciting and fun, and brought new generations of Aboriginal people into these industries.’ – Anna Haebich, Griffith Review
