Screening ahead of National Reconciliation Week, ABLAZE is the compelling true story of the first Aboriginal filmmaker William “Bill” Onus, told by his grandson Tiriki through rare archival footage, state-of-the-art animation and eye-witness accounts.

ABLAZE tells of Bill Onus, a Yorta Yorta and Wiradjuri man from Victoria, a truly heroic cultural and political figure who revived his peopleʼs culture in the 1940s and ignited a civil rights movement that would, against enormous odds, change the course of history.

Through rare archival footage, state-of-the-art animation, vividly created digital motion graphics and eye-witness accounts, ABLAZE is the compelling tale – part detective story, part contemporary opera – of how Bill and supporters brilliantly orchestrated their campaign for equality through performance, entertainment, film and sheer audacity outsmarted mighty forces seeking to destroy Indigenous cultures, languages, and communities.

Exclusive limited screening!
