Ten Canoes

November 15, 2007

All-Aboriginal cast tells a story of wrong love and revenge that flips between ancient myths and the modern-day swamps of Arnhem Land. Celebratory, fun, exquisitely shot. 14 awards. Cannes Film Festival: Special Jury Prize. ¥There is beautiful photography, and some terrifically insouciant performances from first-time actors€Part of what is charming and refreshing about Ten Canoes is that it does not make the Aborigine peoples alien or exotic, or a subordinate part of a story about white people`s transgression.’ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
