Satellite Boy



Abandoned by his mother, 10-year-old Pete (Cameron Wallaby), lives with his elderly grandfather, Jagamarra (David Gulpilil), in a deserted outdoor cinema of outback town Wyndham. When his Grandfather’s home is threatened with demolition, Pete sees his world in jeopardy and with his best friend, Kalmain (Joseph Pedley), sets off for the city. Together the boys travel through epic Kimberley country and when they get lost in the bush, Pete and Kalmain find true friendship. Starving and thirsty, Pete must remember some of the traditional bush skills his grandfather has taught him to survive.
