Dark Place Unclassified 18+

View Trailer

Outback zombies, supernatural housing projects, female revenge, sleep deprivation and Gothic spookiness electrify this twisted horror anthology from five up-and-coming Indigenous filmmakers.

Take a trip into the dark heart of terror nullius with this bold new anthology of short films from Australia’s rising new Indigenous filmmakers.

Kodie Bedford’s Scout turns female oppression into a howl of revenge; an insomniac discovers a terrifying portal inside herself in Liam Phillips’ unsettling Foe; and a witch changes the fortunes of a young public housing resident in Rob Braslin’s Vale Light. Meanwhile, Gothic horror reigns in Perun Bonser’s The Shore, about a young girl in the woods with her father; and Bjorn Stewart’s Killer Native turns first contact between British settlers and Aboriginal peoples into a wickedly funny zombie tale.

Produced by Majhid Heath, Dark Place gives five young auteurs the space to explore contemporary Indigenous ideas via the expressive medium of fantasy/horror – with deliciously entertaining results.
