The Dark Emu Story

Caitlin Yeo & Damien Lane composed the music for this feature documentary about Bruce Pascoe’s Dark Emu (2014). Pascoe maintained that First Nations people were not only hunters and gatherers but also developed methods of agriculture and aquaculture. His claims challenged the accepted orthodoxy, igniting a fierce rebuttal from academics and conservative commentators. The documentary explores the controversy and deepens our understanding of Australian history. The Dark Emu Story was produced by Blackfella Films and directed by Alan Clarke. Streaming now on iView
