In April of 2012, filmmaker Warwick Thornton did a callout around Australia for people to come forward with their indigenous ghost stories. There was only one rule: they must be first hand - the story must be the experience of the storyteller. The callout spread quickly and before we knew it, we were inundated with stories from indigenous and non-indigenous people from across Australia. Along with that, we had people ringing in to say, 'My mum has the best story' or 'My uncle has the scariest one'. Well get them to ring in then, we want to hear it from them. First hand. THE DARKSIDE is a collection of the stories that caught Warwick Thornton's imagination - some spooky, some emotional, some curious, a couple are even funny.
