The Screen Guide

Annie and Geoff live together in Sydney. Annie is the daughter of a politically active mother and football-playing father who are Native Title claimants in country NSW. Geoff has dropped engineering to become an interpretative dancer. This is enough for Annie to worry about without him being the son of cockies who are also from rural NSW. CHECKERBOARD LOVE demonstrates the tension between an interracial couple in love, who consciously de-Aboriginalise their flat in preparation for the dreaded meeting of both sets of parents.
