Reconciliation Week 2019: Black Screen event at Raukkan will celebrate Indigenous filmmaking

Two features from the Adelaide Film Festival will be shown at the Raukkan hall from 7pm this Friday.

Emu Runner tells the story of a girl who unexpectedly loses her mother and finds solace in the company of an emu, her mother's totem animal.

As her father faces the pressure of becoming a sole parent under the watchful gaze of a social worker, the film explores racial tension and the importance of tradition in Indigenous culture.

The other film on the bill will be Supa Modo, about a Kenyan village whose residents work to make a terminally ill nine-year-old the star of her own superhero movie.

Emu Runner director Imogen Thomas will attend the screening, as will musician Glen Skuthorpe.

The films will be preceded by a community dinner at 6pm.

Admission is free.

The films were originally due to be shown in December, but a power failure intervened.
