STORYTELLERS

ETAWA PRESENTS

 

Rachel Perkins

As a writer, director and producer, Rachel Perkins has been a part of some of the most moving and powerful stories told in Australia over the last 25 years. From her early works such as Blood Brothers (1993) and Radiance (1998) to the more recent Bran Nue Dae (2010), Mabo (2014) and Redfern Now (2012), Perkins has brought characters to the screen that have shifted the ground beneath our feet. Her revisions of history in the remarkable documentaries First Australians (2008) First Contact (2014) are testimony to important role that storytellers occupy and impact of narratives on social and individual understanding. Her latest project builds on this body of work as she brings Jasper Jones (2017) to the screen this year and her company, Blackfella Films, continues to support more stories from indigenous storytellers.

 

Sam Carmody

Writer and musician Sam Carmody grew up along the central rural coast of Western Australia. His non-fiction writing has appeared in The Griffith Review and ABC’s The Drum, and his short fiction has been published in The Review of Australian Fiction. He is a previous winner of the Mary Grant Bruce national literary award. Carmody’s debut novel The Windy Season was shortlisted for the 2014 Vogel Award and it is described as “a pulsating narrative that’s tensile and muscly in its depiction of a town and fishing culture drenched in alcohol, drugs and machismo, where violence bristles beneath the surface”. He currently lives in Darwin and teaches writing at the Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Higher Education.
