Synopsis

Maybe Tomorrow by Boori Monty Pryor, Meme McDonald

An anniversary edition of a powerful Australian story. 'The other day this little one asked me, When did you start being an Aborigine, and how old were you when you started that? Like it was a career path or something. I just cracked up laughing.' Boori Monty Pryor's career path has taken him from the Aboriginal fringe camps of his birth to the catwalk, the basketball court, the DJ console, and now to performance and story-telling around the country. 'You've got to try and play the whiteman's game and stay black while you're doing it,' his brother used to tell him. With writer and photographer Meme McDonald, Boori leads you along the paths he has travelled, pausing to meet his family and friends, while sharing the story of his life, his pain and his hopes, with humour and compassion.
