The Darkside on Facebook
What happens when we die? Is there something else? Even more compelling, does another side of reality exist? One that is rife with all manner of demons, entities, and spirits. These are the questions asked in and the basis for the upcoming film The Darkside – The Otherside Project.
The award-winning creative force behind the exquisite Samson & Delilah returns with a groundbreaking and unnerving project… true stories from the other side.
Aboriginal people live on the threshold of two worlds – one of everyday reality and the other of spirits, demons, and entities. They can live an ordinary life with dead ancestors and demons all vying for space.
Director Warwick Thornton assembles a collection of poignant, sad, funny, and absurd ghost tales from across Australia and brings them to life with some of Australia’s most iconic actors as the storytellers. Honest, matter-of-fact firsthand accounts illuminate a black perspective on the other side.
Inspired by THE DARKSIDE’s exploration of storytelling, THE OTHERSIDE PROJECT will create a living archive of indigenous ghost stories – it will be a place where people can share their stories about their own encounters with the afterlife. Through an online hub, the project provides a creative space for storytellers to share their words, seek new collaborations, and further our indigenous heritage in storytelling.
