Synopsis: A feature documentary co-written and co-directed by Nel Minchin (Making Muriel, Matilda & Me) and Wayne Blair (Cleverman, The Sapphires) alongside multi-award winning producer Ivan O’Mahoney (Hitting Home, The Queen & Zak Grieve) of In Films, and executive producer Nial Fulton (Making Muriel, Hitting Home). Marking its 30th anniversary next year, Firestarter will tell the story of one of Australia’s most iconic performing arts company: Bangarra Dance Theatre. Through the eyes of its celebrated artistic director, Stephen Page, it tells a tale of unparalleled success in the face of adversity and pain. Interweaving exclusive and intimate behind-the-scenes footage, Firestarter uncovers the roots of Stephen’s artistic activism and the socio-political context from which he and Bangarra have grown.
