To celebrate both NAIDOC Week 2022 and our film club's one year anniversary, we'll take a look at the work of one of our very best filmmakers, Warwick Thornton.
Warwick Thornton is a Kaytej man who is best known for his contribution to the film industry as a director, screenwriter and cinematographer. His debut feature film as director Samson and Delilah (2009) won the coveted Camera d'Or at the 62nd Cannes International Film Festival. Since then, Thornton has worked on several films including Sweet Country (2017), The Beach (2020) and in recent years, the television series Mystery Road (2020) and Firebite (2021–22).
The First Nations Film Club will screen Thornton's mischievous yet serious documentary We Don’t Need A Map (2017).
Later in July, we also have a special in-person meet and greet with Warwick Thornton – exclusively for First Nations Film Club members. Please RSVP by Thursday 7 July if you would like to attend by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
