Summary
  • V04367: Volume One: Scenes from Ethnographic, Documentary, and Narrative Fearture Films
  • V04367: Most of the first selection of films in this volume show images of adventurers, explorers, scientist and ethnographers who used motion picture camers to record their travels and encounters in far flung reaches of Australia and with Aboriginal peoples often living traditional tribal lifestyles. The surviving footage in the selections often tells as much about the filmmakers as the subjects and often expresses the prevailing attitudes of the day. The second part of Vol 1 includes a selection of scenes from Australian silent feature films. Aboriginal chracters in these films were portrayed in a range of images from loyal and devoted offsiders and friends to extras in a rambling historical epic, and from respected professionals to caricatured wild savages. But there were a few notable exceptions of Aboriginal actors in significant parts. Some films are represented in their entirety, others are represented by scences chosen in liaison with an Aboriginal consultant, actress Justine Saunders.
  • V04368: Volume Two: Coorab in the Island of Ghosts 1929; The Native Problem in Queensland 1937
  • V04368: The film Coorab in the Island of Ghosts (1929) is made by the Southern Cross Company and directed by Francis Birtles and Torrance McLaren. The documentary The Native Problem in Queensland (1937) is a record of patrols to the reserves and missions by E.M. Hanlon, Minister for Health and Home Affairs Qld., to Queensland and the Torres Strait
