In this episode of the Cinema Australia Podcast, host Matthew Eeles is joined by director Imogen Thomas to talk about her heartwarming new film, Emu Runner.
Emu Runner tells the story of nine-year-old Indigenous girl, Gem Daniels (newcomer Rhae-Kye Waites), who lives in a remote Australian town. As she copes with her mother’s unexpected death, Gem finds solace in the company of a wild emu, unwittingly connecting her with her mother’s traditional totem animal.
