The following text is the reproduction of the entire story about the release of Ten Canoes.
An Indigenous film unlike any other seen by Australian audiences premiered at the Adelaide Festival of the Arts last night.
About 2,000 people turned out to see the film Ten Canoes by director Rolf de Heer at the Her Majesty’s Theatre in Adelaide.
It is the first feature-length movie in an Australian Indigenous language.
Ten Canoes is set on the Arafura swamp in north-east Arnhem land and its entire cast is from the nearby Aboriginal community of Ramingining.
Seventeen members of the cast travelled to the premiere screening from Ramingining.
Do we think there’s a crucial piece of information missing from the report?
