BACKTRACK BOYS – RECONCILIATION WEEK SCREENING

Event Date: Thu 27 May

Event Time: 6:30PM

Event Location: Dress Circle Theatre

Event Type:

A group of troubled boys are on a perilous course towards jail until they meet up with the rough talking, free-wheeling jackaroo, Bernie Shakeshaft, and hit the road with his legendary dog jumping team.

This observational documentary, filmed over two years, follows boys in a youth program that Bernie runs from a shed on the outskirts of Armidale. On the road, the boys find their voice, make great friendships and the dogs become national champions. But as the boys sleep under the stars at night the trauma is never too far away.

Directed by Catherine Scott.
