Ten Canoes

Thursday, August 30, 2018, 6:00 PM


Ten Canoes is a 2006 Australian drama film directed by Rolf de Heer and Peter Djigirr and starring Crusoe Kurddal. The title of the film arose from discussions between de Heer and David Gulpilil about a photograph of ten canoeists poling across the Arafura Swamp, taken by anthropologist Donald Thomson in 1936. It is the first ever movie entirely filmed in Australian Aboriginal languages. The film is partly in color and partly in black and white, it is in docu-drama style largely with a narrator explaining the story. The overall format is that of a moral tale.
