EMU RUNNER (10+)

Queensland Premiere

Emu Runner is a remarkable story about a nine-year-old Indigenous girl, Gem Daniels, 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 with her mother’s traditional totem animal.
This incredibly poetic and beautiful independent Australian production was conceived by first-time filmmaker Imogen Thomas in collaboration with Frayne Barker, an Aboriginal Ngemba woman, from Brewarrina. Filmed with the assistance of the entire community the film tells a sincere, authentic, and touching story.

“Director Imogen Thomas has made a powerful feature film debut with the minimalist and poetic Emu Runner” Alex Heller-Nicholas, Flicks.com.au
