Emu Runner is about the impact a mother’s death has on an Aboriginal family living in an isolated community.

The story is seen through the eyes of Gem, a spirited nine-year-old girl, who deals with grief by forging a bond with a wild emu, a mythical bird of her ancestors.

It is a bond she will do anything to keep but one that puts her at odds with a young and inexperienced social worker.

‘A lyrical and poetic film grounded in social realism and emphasising the importance of Country, community and storytelling’ – Sydney Film Festival
