“One has to take responsibility. It’s our history of how we treat ‘the other’ in society that makes us who we are.”
The dreamtime of the Aboriginals not only refers to the past but also to the present and to the future. Knowledge is passed on to new generations in the form of art.
Cleverman is a six-part, futuristic action drama in a dystopian Sydney (Australia), where superhuman ‘Hairy People’ are banished to isolated zones and detention centres. A predominantly indigenous cast, ancient stories from the Aboriginals’ dreamtime and contemporary hip-hop set the tone.
