2023 Australian Director’s Guild Award, Winner Best Direction in a Student Film
A poetic retelling of the experiences of Joseph Murakami, a Broome-born, Darwin-raised fourteen-year-old boy, who is summarily rounded up and interned by his government on the basis of his ethnicity, leaving wounds unhealed to this day.
Built from Joseph's words, Enemy Alien envelopes you in the emotional journey of this overlooked historical event, from a unique perspective, to ask pertinent questions about Australia's history and future.
Enemy Alien premiered as part of the Antenna Documentary Film Festival in October 2022, alongside screenings at the Brisbane International Film Festival and Revelation Perth Film Festival. 
Enemy Alien premiered internationally at DOC NYC in 2023, as part of the Shorts: Collateral Damage programme.
