About the Event

Re-Emergence is the culmination of over three years of exploration with disabled actors in regional NSW, interrogating the question, “how do we emerge from bushfires, covid19, drought and other disruptions over recent years?”. We’ve collected stories, heartfelt conversations, and dramatic scenes. Blurring the lines between documentary and drama, “Re-Emergence” captures the raw essence of these stories, highlighting the resilience of communities in times of disruption. A fictional story about a fractured community awaiting a storm is interspersed with real stories of isolation, perseverance and community-building from the cast – all experts on overcoming adversity. Life imitates art as both the real cast and the fictional characters discover new ways to “re-emerge”, reinvent themselves and find connections with each other. Against the backdrop of scenery from Regional NSW, “Re-Emergence” invites audiences to learn from the wisdom of the natural world – a true representation of resilience and transformation, where every storm yields to a new sunrise and every obstacle is an opportunity for growth. The film, like nature itself, paints a portrait of communities finding strength in the ebb and flow of life. ‘Re-Emergence’ is made possible thanks to funding from the Australian Government Department of Social Services. Rebus is also supported by Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres and the ACT Government.
