PHIL PARKER - PRAISED BY BLACK LIST
Great feedback continues to roll in for the Indigenous sci-fi script, ‘Kindred'!
The prestigious (and notoriously hard to please) film industry website, The Black List, had this to say about it:
"Kindred is imaginative, action-packed, and exciting... filled to the gills with obstacles and action, never letting the stakes or danger let up for even a moment... a thrilling story in a world with an interesting mythology and plot that doesn't stop moving."
The Black List reader gave ‘Kindred' a much sought after (and prayed-for) score of 8/10, putting them in the top 5% of scripts on the site for awhile.
Set in the Australian Outback - and with Indigenous Australians in several lead roles - Kindred is a rollicking adventure in the vein of District 9 and Star Wars. It tells the tale of one man's failed alien abduction and how he must work with his would-be captor to save humankind from extinction before the monsters from his past catch up with them.
Other Indigenous sci-fi has made the news recently with the exciting new series, ‘Cleverman‘ showing on the ABC in Australia and being picked up for a second season by SundanceTV in America
