Digitally remastered from the original negatives, Warwick Thornton’s Berlinale-winning short drama is based on his own experience as a radio DJ in Alice Springs.
Every night, Indigenous radio announcer and DJ Kenny hosts the Green Bush show for Aboriginal communities. Isolated at the station, he takes requests for music, while at the same time coping with the pressure of the community around him.
“A film that crackles with the music of politics, humanity, ideas and humour as it tells the story of a man’s daily struggle to sustain his fragmented community and keep the pain at bay”. - Berlin International Film Festival.
