The Berndt Museum presents a free screening of the film Ten Canoes on Wednesday 25 September 2013, 6:30pm at the Robert Street Lecture Theatre.
Set in and around the Arafura Wetlands of Central Arnhem Land in a time before Western contact, Ten Canoes is the tale of young Dayindi (James Gulpilil) who covets his brother’s wife.
It is a timeless parable that transcends cultural borders and gives a rare glimpse into Aboriginal life and Australia’s mythical past. Narrated by David Gulpilil and directed by Rolf de Heer.
