RED­FERN NOW

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - FRONT PAGE -

ABC1, 8.30pm Red­fern is chang­ing. The Block has been de­mol­ished and its once dan­ger­ous and at times vi­o­lent streets have been cleaned up as the in­ner- city sub­urb con­tin­ues to gen­trify. Trendy cafes and arty shops are aplenty, while the ren­o­va­tion of many of the area’s ter­race homes has in­creased the av­er­age prop­erty price. De­spite this, Red­fern’s close- knit in­dige­nous community re­mains strong. This bond is what spurred this heart­felt six- part se­ries, the first drama se­ries to be writ­ten, di­rected and pro­duced by in­dige­nous Aus­tralians. Stars Leah Pur­cell, Deb­o­rah Mail­man, Jimi Bani, Alec Doomadgee and Sha­reena Clanton ( pic­tured).
