EnhanceTV :: Feature Articles :: Screening Indigenous Australia: an overview of Aboriginal representation on film

Screening Indigenous Australia: an overview of Aboriginal representation on film
Screening Indigenous Australia: an overview of Aboriginal representation on film 
Over 1,000 feature films have been produced in Australia, yet I could only identify around fifty films that represent Aborigines in any way at all within the narrative. I need to add, before I present this brief overview, that things are changing, with a number of more recent films seeking to redress this imbalance and provide substantial Indigenous storylines. However when we look at the New Zealand film industry, with a number of its most successful films specifically addressing Maori culture and politics - such as Whale Rider and Once Were Warriors - it would seem important to ask the question, when will the Australian film industry explore Indigenous issues in more depth and with greater cultural resonance?
