NAIDOC Week 2019: Emu Runner

Join us for this special screening in celebration of NAIDOC (National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee) Week. In an outback NSW town, a young Indigenous girl forms a very special bond with a wild emu, in a unique Australian story of love and loss.

Newcomer Rhae-Kye Waites shines as Gem, a nine-year-old girl who deals with the grief of her mother’s death by secretly befriending a wild emu. However, her need to source tasty snacks for her new friend, and her absence from school, attract the attention of family and authorities. Gem’s loving father (played by Wayne Blair, The Sapphires) is at a loss to know how to handle his wayward daughter.

Location: Riverside Theatre, Cnr of Market & Church Streets, Parramatta

When: Sunday 14th July @ 7pm
