Festival of Indigenous Australian Cinema, Indigenous (Super) Heroes on Screen
A key pillar of the Australia now France 2021-22 program, the Festival of Indigenous Australian Cinema brings together several Parisian independent cinemas to celebrate Indigenous (Super) Heroes on Screen. This unique film program presents Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander icons on the big screen, from leading pioneers to the most flamboyant superheroes of today’s pop culture.
This panorama of irreverent icons, fiery pioneers, desert paladins, Olympic legends, Aboriginal Wonder Women and witty romantic comedy heroines presents a confluence of the Australian Indigenous new wave through a range of films from ground-breaking documentaries to more conventional romantic comedies, with a dusting of neo-western metaphors.
Each director in the selection explores the mythic potential of a larger-than-life Aboriginal hero/heroine and celebrates their ability to transform both individuals and communities, in Australia and beyond.
Take a journey through land, space and time from 24 November 2021 to 9 January 2022.
