ABC ME will launch Viv’s Silly Mango, Gugu naGogo, Namaste Yoga and Yaz Queens, on Sunday, November 20 at 9am AEDT on ABC ME and ABC iview.
The films make up the heart of the Kaleidoscope Project, a joint ABC/ Screen Australia initiative which supports and showcases the best of Australia’s next generation of filmmakers, through mentorship and collaboration with experienced executive producers as well as editorial guidance from ABC Children’s and Screen Australia.
Each film aims to explore what life in contemporary Australia is like as a young person from communities who are often underrepresented in the media. The portrayals are compelling, refreshingly honest and told authentically through the lens of filmmakers Mary Duong, Rae Choi, Taku Mbudzi, Ravi Chand and Lara Köse.
The films are beautiful, bold and powerful, celebrating the delights and unexpected discoveries that shape the identities of so many young people growing up in Australia today.
ABC Children’s and Screen Australia are excited to continue their commitment to diverse and inclusive storytelling and the opportunity to support authentic representation on screen.
