I just had the pleasure of watching a beautiful new movie named Charlie’s Country about an indigenous Australian struggling in the Northern Territory intervention and his escape back to the land. It was great to hear Yolŋu language used extensively. Yolŋu language is of the Pama–Nyungan family and is spoken by about 4600 people in Arnhem Land you can hear samples in the below trailer.
What other good movies feature a lot of aboriginal language dialect?
