An Indigenous classic
As the first feature film directed by an Australian Aboriginal woman, Bedevil is an Indigenous on-screen classic.
The must-see movie aims to portray how Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians understand and live with each other.
Director Tracey Moffatt achieves this by recounting a narrative of three supernatural stories from Aboriginal and Anglo/Celtic relatives.
Bedevil’s anthology aptly challenges racial stereotypes in society and puts a mirror onto white and black Australia.
Synopsis: Three scary stories within a story
Rick (Jack Charles), an Aboriginal boy living near a swamp on Bribie Island, is haunted by an American solider who drowned in quicksand.
Choo Choo Choo Choo
Ruby (Tracey Moffatt) and her family live in a house near long-abandoned train tracks, which still carry ghostly apparitions.
Lovin’ the Spin I’m in
A landlord (Lex Marinos) has trouble evicting the tenants of an old warehouse: a couple that's been dead for years.
