Synopsis
 

Australia’s iconic homegrown musical,  back and ready for a new generationSet out on the road trip of a lifetime with a runaway teenager, two hippies, a wily Uncle and a German priest. By the time you shake the red dust from your feet, you’ll know what it means to come home.

Jimmy Chi’s coming-of-age musical comedy Bran Nue Dae is an exuberant ride through 1960s Western Australia. Young Willie embarks on a journey of discovery, hitchhiking his way from mission school back to Broome, determined to win the heart of the girl he left behind.

This first-ever Aboriginal musical celebrates family, forgiveness and reconciliation with a feel-good mash-up of rock-and-roll, gospel, country and blues music.

It’s a story for all Australians.

“It is my story but it is also yours and everybody else you know who seeks love and happiness in a world clouded by injustice.” Jimmy Chi
