The Djarn Djarns
26m

Frankie Dollar is eleven years old. He is the leader of an Aboriginal traditional dance group, the Djarn Djarns Dancers. The Djarn Djarns operate from Australia's largest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural centre, the Dreamtime Cultural Centre in Rockhampton. They are young urban blackfellas, with a responsibility to keep their culture alive. Today is the first year anniversary of Frankie's father's death. It is a busy day at Dreamtime, with lots of tourists who the Djarn Djarns must perform for. Frankie is the strength of this dance group, but today he is weak, his mind is elsewhere. Starring Hunter Page-Lochard and Blake Herczog.
