An unmissable new series, created by Erica Glynn and Warren H. Williams, shot in the spectacular country around Mparntwe (Alice Springs) and Yeperenye (East MacDonnell Ranges).
Detective Toni Alma (Rarriwuy Hick) is assigned to investigate a suspicious car accident in Perdar Theendar, the Aboriginal community she left as a child and has had little to do with over the years. The beauty of Aboriginal art and the sometimes devious practices in the global art market take Detective Alma on a hunt for a killer. This is a murder mystery like no other, exploring culture, community, family and one woman’s pursuit to find her place within it. Co-created by Glynn (She Who Must Be Obeyed Loved, SFF 2019) and Williams (who also plays Toni’s uncle, Samuel), directed by Glynn and Steven McGregor (co-writer, Sweet Country), shot by Murray Lui (Top End Wedding) and produced by Bunya Productions (Sweet Country, Goldstone, Mystery Road, Toomelah) – True Colours has wealth of talent behind the scenes. The on-screen line-up is no less impressive, with rising star Rarriwuy Hick (Redfern Now) in the central role, alongside Luke Arnold (Never Tear Us Apart), Miranda Otto (The Daughter, SFF 2016), and Trisha Morton-Thomas (Radiance, SFF 2021).

All four episodes will be presented, with a 15-minute interval between episodes 2 and 3.
