CAMEO: AGE OF BONES (JAMAN BELULANG)
The Age of Bones (Jaman Belulang) is an Australian-Indonesian co-production about an Indonesian boy, Ikan, who goes fishing one day and fails to return.
Assuming the worst, his parents hire a legendary seafarer to look for his corpse. He finds nothing. The Age of Bones traces what happened to Ikan – from the day he left, to his eventual imprisonment in Australia and his fight to return home.
Darwin writer Sandra Thibodeaux was inspired by the real-life stories of around 60 Indonesian boys who were allegedly jailed in Australia for working on refugee boats.
The Age of Bones is mostly set under the ocean in an underwater court, a fantastical piece realized through shadow puppets, video and music.
