Preppers – 2021

The end is coming, no one will be spared! - 6 x 30'


After she experiences her own personal apocalypse, Aboriginal morning TV host Charlie escapes the fallout, and finds herself at the centre of a ragtag community of doomsday preppers settled in her grandma’s land.

Surrounded by quirky personalities, from a pair of optimistic born-again Christians to a fiery Gen-Z indigenous activist, Charlie tries to get her groove back after her scuffles with mainstream, white society.

Why we like it:

A raucous, oddball comedy weaponising humour to open complex and uncomfortable discussions on identity and racism, holding no punches and leaving no one spared from being the butt of the joke, while also inspiring courage, self-determination and a sense of belonging.
