Courage can take you away from home.
Love will lead you back.
Join Amnesty International WA in celebrating National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day with this screening of Satellite Boy.
Pete (Cameron Wallaby), lives with his elderly grandfather, Jagamarra (David Gulpilil), in a deserted outdoor cinema of outback town Wyndham. When his Grandfather’s home is threatened with demolition, Pete sees his world in jeopardy and with his best friend, Kalmain (Joseph Pedley), sets off for the city.
Together the boys travel through epic Kimberley country and when they get lost in the bush, Pete and Kalmain find true friendship.
Satellite Boy is a heart-warming coming of age story of a young and courageous boy.
