Marlu Man

Director : Zac James

Overview & Credits


In response to a society rife with racism, an Aboriginal man finds himself pushed to the brink, birthing the most unlikely superhero alter-ego: Marlu Man. Armed with a pouch full of ping pong balls, a polony sandwich (yes, polony, not devon), and an unyielding thirst for justice, Marlu Man takes matters into his own hands. Operating from his fortress of solitude, affectionately known as Mum's shed, he kidnaps online trolls and administers the justice they deserve. Marlu Man: part kangaroo, part avenger. All hero.
