Storm Boy 1976
The story follows a young boy named Mike (Greg Rowe) who lives with his father Tom (Peter Cummins) in an isolated shack on the deserted coast of Coorong, in South Australia. Theirs is a reclusive life; Mike doesn’t go to school, can’t read or write, and therefore doesn’t have any friends. He spends days walking along the coastline, collecting wood and watching the birds. One day a pelican mother is shot by poachers and Mike adopts three chicks, which he names Mr Proud, Mr Ponder and Mr Percival, the latter of which he forms a strong bond with. Mike also meets an Aborigine man named Fingerbone (David Gulpilil), who lives illegally on the reserve. Mike and Fingerbone form a sensitive friendship, built around the pelicans, which they both wish to protect...
Suddenly there are intruders, the local teacher who wants him to attend school, a resentful wild-life ranger, duck hunters... Storm Boy, growing up, is forced to choose between a life of continued isolation and the challenges of the outside world.
