The Djarn Djarns (2005, M)

Dir: Wayne Blair, Australia
Writ: Wayne Blair
The Djarns Djarns is the story of friendship between four boys, the responsibility they feel for their culture and the love a young boy has for his father.
Duration: 25mins

Green Bush 26min (2005, MA15+)

Dir: Warwick Thornton, Australia
Prod: Kath Shelper, Writ: Warwick Thornton
A simple short film from writer-director Warwick Thornton based on his experience as a DJ earlier in his life. Using minimal locations, it tells a beautifully crafted story about a DJ whose job is not confined to making the music happen. Green Bush speaks of community responsibility through the central character Kenny (David Page), and makes a statement on manhood with a directness that is culturally relevant to all Indigenous communities.
Duration: 26mins

SA Black Thing (2005, PG)

Dir: Rima Tamou, Australia
Prod: Pauline Clague, Writ: Rima Tamou
For brash young salesman Clinton Spice, life is looking up. He has been sent to a tropical Paradise, all expenses paid, to close the deal of a lifetime. But on the eve of his all-important pitch his documents are stolen by Crystal, a vivacious young thief, and he sets out to track her down before his deadline. But what he gets is the last thing he ever expected.
Duration: 26mins
