Australian stories: a superhero rises in Cleverman

I’m chomping at the bit tonight to see the debut of the new Australian superhero, Cleverman.

On ABC2 we will get to not only get an Australian story, but one lovingly cultivated from Indigenous Australian stories, telling those stories with their own voices.

Well received at Sundance Film Festival, this new series premieres with a notable excitement in the speculative fiction community in Australia.

Creator Ryan Griffen talks about the creation of Cleverman for his son and in consultation with elders, asking permission to tell their stories.

Join me and other excited Australians watching on the ABC at 9:30 tonight!
