OFF COUNTRY

In Rhian Skirving and John Harvey’s documentary OFF COUNTRY, Indigenous teenagers navigate exams, social dramas and maintain meaningful connections to home while at boarding school.

Every year, around 3,000 Indigenous students receive scholarships to attend some of Australia’s most prestigious boarding schools. It is an immense opportunity, but it also means they must leave their homes and communities. Over the course of a year, OFF COUNTRY follows several such students, who, despite hailing from distinct nations and having vastly different circumstances, each share a commitment to doing themselves and their families proud-no matter the difficulties.
