FILM DEBUT: SPEAR
Sense of unease fascinates viewers
Stephen Page's Spear will open at the National Film and Sound Archive Arc Cinema on March 12.
Spear is an arresting production
adapted from stage to screen by artistic
director of Australia s renowned
Bangarra Dance Theatre, Stephen
Page. The 84-minute debut film will
screen for a limited time at the
National Film and Sound Archive s
Arc Cinema with a special cast and
crew Q&A session with Page on
Saturday, March 12.
The film captures the journey of a
young man, Djali played by Hunter
Page-Lochard, as he reconciles ancient
traditions with the modern urban
Intricate costume, layered sound
and a sense of disquiet keep viewers
transfixed as the scenes dart from
gritty inner city streetscapes, sterile
correctional facility cells and rugged
coast lines gripped by swell.
Djali s journey takes him to various
realms of his own consciousness
discovering a range of contemporary
social issues affecting young
Indigenous men including alcohol and
substance abuse, sexuality, violence,
sexual abuse, incarceration and
Through his eyes the film explores
and challenges what it means to be a
man and considers the modern forms
Page said Spear broke new ground
for the performance company and was
made possible through the HIVE Fund
which commissions "audacious arts
projects" to premiere at the Adelaide
International Film Festival.
"It got picked in 2014 and we only
had a year to deliver because it had to
be ready to show at the Adelaide Film
Festival in October 2015," he said.
"It already had a deadline and was
going to premiere at an international
film festival before it was created."
Despite the rush of the tight time
frame, Page has delivered a result
which mirrors the energy and spirit
synonymous with Bangara Dance
"I was just trying to make sure the
art form or experience was somehow
tapping into your spiritual
consciousness," he said.
"Even if you didn t surrender and go
along with it and you were frustrated it
didn t spoon feed you, for me that was
OK. I was just trying to find an
experience that did challenge the
traditional way of film."

ALBUM: CURVE OF THE EARTH/ARTIST: MYSTERY JETS
Adventurous record contains a smorgasbord of genres
Britain s Mystery Jets may seem on
the tip of your tongue when you first
hear them. Is that Radiohead -- or
another band from the 90s I m
listening to, or has Matt Bellamy
released another Muse album I m
These Jets define everything that
was kind of right with the 90s -- epic
prog rock, a little grunge and much
more edge then you d get from a
Taylor Swifts song.
Curve Of The Earth is an
adventurous record with ball-tearing
riffs and songs that are sonically in
tune with galaxies and grand
statements revolving around love and
the loss of it. Immaculate pop choruses
are in abundance here, whether in the
medieval Taken By the Tide or the
swashbuckling opener Telomere --
which has to be one of the best songs
released this year with Bowie s
Lazarus.InfactTelomere could have
easily been a huge song that wouldn t
seem out of place on Radiohead s
1995 s rock album The Bends.
The album may seem short, with
nine tracks, but it s ideas galore
crammed into this long player that in a
sense makes it well-rounded and a
smorgasbord of genres to hook in to.
A solid album for Mystery Jets that
takes this listener back in time -- oh to
be 20 again!
