Taking us through the Bangarra Dance Theatre's birth and spectacular growth, this documentary tells the story of how three young Aboriginal brothers - Stephen, David and Russell Page - turned their dance group into a First Nations cultural powerhouse. Firestarter explores the loss and reclaiming of culture, the burden of intergenerational trauma, and the power of art as a messenger for social change and healing.
