Ten Canoes

Moving between the story, and the story within the story, this tale of ancient times is gripping and teaches the traditional ways of aboriginal people. The culture is polygamistic, and the gentle narration of this film helps us to understand the reasoning behind the tradition. The film is beautifully made, alternating between color and black and white to show the different times portrayed.
