Read the original news
The Youth Cultural House in District 1 will host the free screening of the award-winning Australian Aboriginal film “Bran nue dae,” next week.
Australian singer and actress Jessica Mauboy also stars in the film
The screening is an attempt to mark the fourth year since the Australian government officially made their apology for their past mistreatment of the Aboriginal people who are indigenous to most of the Australian continent.
Inspired by the popular 1990 musical, “Bran nue dae,” by Jimmy Chi, the feature film was officially released in Australia in 2010 and won Most Polular Feature Film at Melbourne International Film Festival in 2009.
The road movie and romantic comedy, starring Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush, centers on the romantic adventure of a young Aboriginal couple set against the spectacularly beautiful Australian landscape.
“Bran new dae” will be screened at the Youth Cultural House, 4 Pham Ngoc Thach in District 1 at 7pm on February 13. Free tickets are to be distributed at the Australian General Consulate upon calling (08) 35218134.
