Moral Compass - "Cleverman" Special
In this Compass special, Geraldine Doogue and her guests explore the Indigenous mythology underpinning the groundbreaking new ABC drama Cleverman.
Joining Geraldine are Cleverman Series Concept Creator and Producer Ryan Griffen; writer, actor and Cleverman Director, Leah Purcell; broadcaster and journalist Stan Grant and academic Dr Frances Wyld, to discuss what meaning these stories, drawn from Aboriginal spirituality, offer modern Australians. The 6-part television series Cleverman takes the sci-fi genre and marries it with Aboriginal Dreaming, mythology and story-telling; a remarkable blend. Geraldine and her guests explore how a culture that is tens of thousands of years old can be adapted to a very 21st century TV series like Cleverman and how each of her panelists adapts that ancient spirituality to fit in with their contemporary lives.
