“A unique experience in urgent storytelling through movement” – Variety
A ground-breaking collaboration between dancers and filmmakers, this deeply spiritual film is both directorial debut and hometown premiere for Brisbane’s Stephen Page, Artistic Director of Bangarra Dance Theatre for more than 20 years, and stars his son Hunter Page-Lochard.
From the vast skies of the outback to the rough industrial city streets, Spear is the journey of a young Aboriginal man straddling the ancient and modern worlds, and disconnected from both. Told through movement and both traditional and contemporary dance, it’s a powerful reflection on carrying the flame of timeless rituals into a world that has almost forgotten them.
Director Stephen Page and Producer John Harvey in attendance.
