IMOGEN THOMAS |  95 MIN |   AUSTRALIA
A film to open hearts and minds, our family feature 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 connected with her mother's traditional totem animal.

Gem is a child full of wonder and intrigue, anchored by the deep cultural roots of her Ngemba people and country, and thus her sense of belonging is implicit.  Told from Gem's perspective of the world, this heart-warming and ultimately triumphant story plays out against the pressing issues and challenges that come from living in an isolated community.

Starring: Wayne Blair (Redfern Now, The Sapphires), Mauriel Spearim (Wentworth, the Secret River), Georgia Blizzard (Home and Away, Thur: Ragnarock), Rob Carton (Chandon Pictures) and introducing a studding cast of newcomers in Mary Waites, Letisha Boney, Lindsay Waties, Rodney McHughes and Stella Carter.
