Warwick Thornton, The Man - with three of his major works on show this week

Posted by Jeremy Eccles | 21.01.19

Dates: 21.01.19 : 26.01.19

The SBS TV spin-off, NITV is building up to a big day on 26th January with a series of top documentaries and feature films that cover some of the major stories and issues in Indigenous Australia, mostly by Aboriginal creators – as should be the case as we come to re-consider Australia/Invasion Day.

I've reviewed many of the programs over the years, so I'll link you back to my thoughts whenever possible. Just click on the title as I run through the week:

Teach a Man to Fish - Monday 21 January, 8.30pm
Beneath Clouds - Monday 21 January, 10.00pm
Connection to Country - Monday 21 January 11.35pm
Wik Vs Queensland - Tuesday 22 January, 8.30pm
Another Country - Tuesday 22 January, 10pm
We Don't Need a Map - Wednesday 23 January, 9.30pm
Samson and Delilah - Wednesday 23 January, 11pm
Radiance - Thursday 24 January, 9.30pm
The Song Keepers - Friday 25 January, 9.15pm
Sunrise Ceremony - Saturday 26 January, 7am
Sweet Country - Saturday 26 January, 9.30pm
Rabbit Proof Fence - Saturday 26 January, 11.30pm

Of this powerful bill of fare, the absolutely Don't-Miss items are:

'Wik v Queensland' – the doco that reveals Wik clarity, early Noel Pearson activism and John Howard's duplicity; 'We Don't Need a Map' and 'Samson & Delilah' – Wednesday's Warwick Thornton double bill; 'Beneath Clouds', Ivan Sen's fabulous debut feature; 'Sweet Country' and 'Rabbit Proof Fence' a pair of features that offer radically different Black and White takes on the early contacts between colonists and the people they denied an existence to.
