The Black Buster Musical 

Black Buster is a “short comedy musical,” funded by Screen Australia Indigenous Branch, the ABC and Screen Queensland as part of the Flash Black initiative. The initiative is making a series of ten-minute films this year. Black Buster is the first one to go into production.

The story is about “a young Indigenous boy who’s selling pirate DVDs outside the town pub. He’s in love with the girl who works behind the bar. She’s the daughter of the publican. He [the boy] goes into reveries or dream sequences of his favourite movies or movie genres. This builds throughout the film until at the end, he gets the courage from the dreams to turn up and fight for the girl he loves. It all ends in a big song and dance number in the street.”

The film was written and directed by Sio Tusa Fa’aaefili, a part Torres Strait Islander part Samoan filmmaker.
