Red River

 

Red River

Red River confronts a space which is rarely illuminated, but which is long overdue for a place in our public conversation: the realities of drought and how it effects those living in the most remote areas of Australia. Red River is emotionally challenging, deeply resonant, and heartbreakingly relevant to an agrarian country already being affected by global climate change. The juxtaposition of multicultural river-myths with true-life stories will give metropolitan audiences a new understanding of what it means to live with drought. It will deliver a raw, powerful experience which will shake up pre-existing notions, and provoke important questions which will lead people to give real consideration to the nature of the problems faced by people in rural Australia.
