Cyclone Tracy was one of the worst natural disasters in Australia's history, virtually wiping the city of Darwin from the map. Now 40 years later, previously untold stories reveal compelling new perspectives on the devastating storm, the controversial mass evacuation and the troubled reconstruction, investigating the socio-political effects on Darwin and its residents. Extraordinary archival footage, immersive animation and in-depth interviews tell a powerful story revealing the legacy and myths of Cyclone Tracy including the coming of age of Darwin, the heroism of Darwinians, and the politicisation of the rebuild. The failure of most official records of the disaster to mention Indigenous people is addressed with stories from Aboriginal people who lived through the storm, and accounts of traditional Aboriginal beliefs that explain from a cultural standpoint the cyclone and resulting devastation. PRODUCTION DETAILS: Brindle Films and Nirvana Films. Produced with assistance of Screen Territory in association with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and Screen Australia. Produced by Rachel Clements and James Bradley. ABC Executive Producer and Head of Indigenous Sally Riley.
