Darwin, 1942. A town collapses under the threat of invasion. Mothers and daughters, sisters, friends, and entire cultures are torn apart by the secrets that start to fall. Is Mr Takahashi to blame?
Japan unleashes a wave of attacks on Northern Australia, and Darwin is hit with more bombs than Pearl Harbour. Mr Takahashi turns the lens upon ordinary people caught in the storm that was World War II. It tells the stories of Darwin’s multicultural and Indigenous women whose lives were forever changed by the bombings of February 19.
Something’s wrong – the air is shifting.
It’s waiting â€¦
Waiting for the tardy storms.
You could cut the humidity
with the sword of a Samurai.
Where is the Imperial Army?
