Let’s share must-see movies

Hi everyone,

I was just recalling must-see indigenous movies. I would really appreciate if you could share some too please.

Must-see movies: Yolngu boy was the first Aboriginal Australian movie I saw at a film festival  in my home country Mauritius, back in 2000.  Some others in the last years are  Samson & Delilah , Ten canoes and of course Rabbit proof fence .

    Hi Doorush, Have you seen Storm Boy? It’s a kids movie and not really an Aboriginal movie but it’s has David Gulpilil in one of his early acting roles and is a wonderful leap back in time to Australia in the 70s.
