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.
