Pemulwuy lived across the Sydney basin, he was a member of the Dharug, Bidjigal, Dharawal communities. The film will be produced utilizing the real locations in which we know historically Pemulwuy lived and breathed. Key scenes will be shot on location at Prospect Reservoir, La Perouse, Parramatta, Richmond and Doonside.
Our story room was held at the Atura Hotel in Prospect, direct descendants of Pemulwuy (from both the male line and female family lines) met with the creative team to have a yarn, and to share their knowledge and aural history of the Pemulwuy legacy. The Atura Hotel is situated in Country and is directly opposite Prospect Reservoir, an area known to be the home of Pemulwuy.
