FILM SCREENING

Black Screen: Ella

Overview

In October 2012, Ella Havelka became the first Indigenous dancer to be invited into The Australian Ballet in its 50-year history. It was an announcement that made news headlines nationwide. A descendant of the Wiradjuri people, we follow Ella’s inspirational journey from the regional town of Dubbo and onto the world stage of The Australian Ballet. Featuring intimate interviews, dynamic dance sequences, and a stunning array of archival material, this moving documentary follows Ella as she explores her cultural identity and gives us a rare glimpse into life as an elite ballet dancer within the largest ballet company in the southern hemisphere.

Our Black Screen film program is curated by John Harvey from Brown Cabs, a FCAC Company in Residence.
