“There are innovators, masters and imitators”

Karbara The First Born
A film on the First National Black Playwrights Conference and Workshop held January 1987. Invited into the Sydney Film Festival, June 1987, and Pincher Creek Indian Film Festivals of 1989 & 1990, Karbara was first broadcast on ABC TV.
Rediscovered by the film’s director and producer from the Flinders University Library, this 16mm documentary-drama is an important record of Australian film and theatre history, a documentary-drama gem, weaving fiction, fact and metafiction in a moving piece on creative effort and cultural dreams.
