The Djarn Djarns (2005, M)
Dir: Wayne Blair, Australia, 25mins
Writ: Wayne Blair
The Djarns Djarns is the story of friendship between four boys, the responsibility they feel for their culture and the love a young boy has for his father.
Green Bush (2005, MA15+)
Dir: Warwick Thornton, Australia, 26mins
Prod: Kath Shelper, Writ: Warwick Thornton
A simple short film from writer-director Warwick Thornton based on his experience as a DJ earlier in his life. Using minimal locations, it tells a beautifully crafted story about a DJ whose job is not confined to making the music happen. Green Bush speaks of community responsibility through the central character Kenny (David Page), and makes a statement on manhood with a directness that is culturally relevant to all Indigenous communities.
Plains Empty (2005, M)
Dir: Beck Cole, Australia, 27mins
Prod: Kath Shelper, Writ: Beck Col
A young woman, left largely to her own devices, is drawn into uncovering hidden stories of the past. Beck Cole continues with the theme of ghostly apparitions and visitations and, in this enthralling drama, exploits the vacuous space of the mining fields.

Dir: Warwick Thornton, 14mins
