We are students and graduates from JMC Academy in Brisbane, this film is a graduate project for the Writer/Director of ‘Lights on the Hill’.
The film follows Eva, a young Aboriginal woman, whose husband and daughter get abducted by the Min Min Lights. Min Min Lights are glowing orbs that appear in some areas of Outback Australia. Some Indigenous Australians fear these lights and believe that they can abduct or harm people. Once Eva returns to her small town, she is blamed for the disappearance of her Husband and Daughter, so she then must live with the ridicule and harassment of the townspeople until she can find a way to get them back.
This story is based on the Min Min Lights that can be seen on the desert plains of Western Australia. The myth of the Min Min Lights is a story told in Aboriginal communities throughout Australia and also in South American and some European countries.
This Mythology will play a role in the core structure and message within the story.
The main aim of this film is to share the Mythology of the Min Min Lights with a wider audience, and for the filmmakers to showcase their talents and start their careers.
All donations will go directly into making the film. The donations will cover costs such as; catering for the crew, equipment hire, travel expenses, production design, marketing, and administration costs.
