Catriona McKenzie / Australia / 2012 / 85 mins / English and Yolngu Matha with English subtitles / Narrative

“Lively, poignant, direct and dreamlike”
THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

For Pete, a 12-year-old Indigenous Australian boy and his elderly grandfather Old Jagamarra (David Gulpilil), home is an abandoned outdoor cinema in the outback town of Wyndham. That is until a mining company threatens to demolish their home to make way for new developments. Pete and his best friend Kalmain set out across the stunning Kimberley landscape in an effort to reach the city and stop the demolition before it’s too late. Lost in the bush, Pete and Kalmain learn to trust one another and the land to help guide them through. An astonishing film about courage, cultural heritage and true friendship, Satellite Boy is a captivating film full of meaning and wonder.

Not suitable for children under 5. Parental guidance for 6-12 recommended.
