BRAN NUE DAE

Australia, 2009 (MIFF 2009, Premiere Fund)

Director: Rachel Perkins

BRAN NUE DAE

An energetic, star-studded musical road trip about finding where you belong.

Filmed in the desert-scapes of Western Australia's Broome, this exuberant musical road movie - studded with stars of stage and screen including Jessica Mauboy, Ernie Dingo, with Missy Higgins and Geoffrey Rush - began life as a stage musical in the early 90s.

Bran Nue Dae's unique mix of comedy, dance, music and joy is brought to the screen by director Rachel Perkins (One Night the Moon, Radiance) and cinematographer Andrew Lesnie (The Lord of the Rings, King Kong).

You have never seen anything like it.
