BEMAC presents Reel Connections: On Stage & Bring the Sun Out
16 Jul 2015 | Thursday 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Indigenous Film Night to celebrate NAIDOC Week.
Dean, a gay Aboriginal male, is banished from the family home by his father. Dean goes on to become a celebrated cabaret performer as ‘Dee the Performer’ but is still torn between the love for his father and his new fame.
‘On Stage’ was written by Torres Strait Islander, Luke Captain in 2009. Funded by Screen Australia’s Indigenous Department in 2014 as part of the ‘Pitch Black’ initiative, shooting was completed in Cairns, Far North Queensland over two days. The film stars all local Cairns actors and is produced by Indigenous company Turn Dog Quick Films. The majority of cast and crew were Indigenous including Producer, Writer, Director and Cinematographer.
Presented by The Indigenous Department of Screen Australia & Turn Dog Quick Films Production

What happens when you put together three groundbreaking Indigenous acts and send them across Queensland on a 14 day tour? Bring the Sun Out documents the journey of Impossible Odds, The Cold Water Band and CKNU as they travel across Queensland during NAIDOC.
