Coal Face

30 May, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Artback NT presents Coal Face – a compelling drama about cultural tensions on the land.

On a small patch of land in Northern Australia, Alice tries to convince Ron the traditional owner to lease his home-land to her mining company. In town, siblings Sam and Jem have just buried their father. Sam is happy to leave the past behind, while Jem has returned home after years of absence to find out about their mother who died when they were young. Pitting brother against sister and economy against culture, Coal Face is about cultural tensions on the land. It’s about family and heartache, and how to reconcile an identity when you don’t understand your own past. Presented by Artback NT.
