The award-winning creative force behind the exquisite Samson & Delilah return with a groundbreaking and unnerving project… true stories from the other side. Aboriginal people live on the threshold of two worlds – one of everyday reality and the other of spirits, demons and entities. They can live an ordinary life with dead ancestors and demons all vying for space.
Director Warwick Thornton assembles a collection of poignant, sad, funny and absurd ghost tales from across Australia and brings them to life with some of Australia’s most iconic actors as the storytellers. Honest, matter-of-fact firsthand accounts illuminate a black perspective on the other side. The Darkside is produced by Metro Screen’s President Kath Shelper.
The film will be premiering on 16th October 2013 at the Adelaide Film Festival and will then screen in Sydney on 16th November 2013 at the new Corroboree Sydney Festival, in a pop up cinema on Wharf 2/3.
