From 10 March, Arc cinema will be screening the exclusive Canberra season of Stephen Page’s debut feature Spear, including a special Q&A with the director on Saturday, 12 March 2016.
A unique cinematic experience told through movement and dance with little dialogue, Spear draws on Page’s formidable 25 years spent as Artistic Director of the Bangarra Dance Theatre, where he has been interpreting the stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians for global stages.
Spear follows a young man named Djali (Hunter Page-Lochard) from the Australian outback to the streets of Sydney on his quest to understand what it means to be a man with ancient traditions in a modern world. Despite the fragmentation of Indigenous cultures, it is in the complex interconnection between places that Djali will ultimately discover his own power – a power linking past, present and future.
