The Screen Guide

BLACK RIVER, a musical drama based on an opera of the same name, combines choreographed Aboriginal dance sequences with Australia's brightest operatic and acting talent. The story explores the human tragedy surrounding Miriam, as she grows up and witnesses the death of three generations of her Aboriginal family under the hand of white custodianship.
