The Screen Guide

DARK EMU is a phenomenon. The book has sold more than a quarter of a million copies, received multiple awards and is one of the best-selling books of its kind. As questions arose over the merits of the contents of the book, old questions re-surfaced about the authenticity of the author Bruce Pascoe. In this feature documentary, we will delve into this search for identity, and in so doing spark yet more conversations about where we might be heading as a nation. The documentary will also be a platform for First Nations people to tell their own stories about their deep past. How new discoveries are shedding light on who their ancestors were and how they survived and prospered for at least 65,000 years on the most arid continent on earth.
