Crocodile Dreaming

SBS  |  November 18, 2011

Directed by Darlene Johnson, Crocodile Dreaming tells the traditional Aboriginal story of a mystical stone which holds the stories and songs of the ancestors. The stone is stolen from its proper location and subsequently causes the death of two children. In order for the natural order to return, the stone must be found and brought back. Filmed over six years in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Crocodile Dreaming uses traditional storytelling together with modern-day special effects. Johnson wanted to emphasise the spiritual, sacred and mystic side of actor David Gulpilil and his story.
