BEHIND THE SCENES
Emu Runner is a film about many things. The most important aspect of the film is the commitment given to it by all the people of the Brewarrina community; without their unshakeable support, it just would not have happened. The film tells the story about one family’s strength in recovering from terrible loss. The loss that the character of Gem, the film’s protagonist, struggles with throughout the film is taken back at the end through the catharsis of many characters in the film and how their experience strengthens their spirits and enables them to move beyond the pain of losing someone close, of losing someone’s respect and taking charge of their lives.
