OT: Emu Runner
Imogen Thomas // Australia, 2018
Fiction Feature // FF2019
Nine-year old Gem lives with her Aborigine family in a remote region of Australia. When Gem‘s mother dies suddenly, a wild emu helps her get through a difficult period. The emu is a mythical bird of her ancestors and, like Gem, a fast runner – ever forwards, never back. It’s a relationship for which she would do anything, but one that also brings her into conflict with a social worker.
