Ten Canoes pictures

Ten Canoes description

One of Australia’s most important films, the first in an Aboriginal language, is an all Yolngu work, facilitated by Rolf de Heer in close collaboration with Gulpilil, who narrates in inimitable fashion. The New York Times was enthralled by the playful wit and great yarn, but the death-dance sequence also offers the most profound insight into ancient human culture ever shot.
