TEN CANOES

(2006)

Vertigo Productions, Fandango Australia

It is the distant past, tribal times. Dayindi (played by Jamie Gulpilil, son of the great David Gulpilil) covets one of the wives of his older brother. To teach him the proper way, he is told a story from the mythical past, a story of wrong love, kidnapping, sorcery, bungling mayhem and revenge gone wrong. In English storytelling (by David Gulpilil) and subtitled Ganalbingu language, this is a film unlike any you have ever seen. Stars Crusoe Kurddal, Jamie Gulpilil, Richard Birrinbirrin. Shot in the Northern Territory and post produced in South Australia.
