Warwick Thornton’s acclaimed documentary WE DON’T NEED A MAP will screen in Broome, with a special Q&A event planned with producer Brendan Fletcher
onSunday 4 March at 7 pm at Sun Pictures.
Described by Variety as “an eye-opening lesson for the world about the proud history and ongoing racial tensions that currently form the crux of the Australian
experience”, WE DON’T NEED A MAP is the story of the hijacking of an Australian icon. The Southern Cross is the most famous constellation in the southern
hemisphere. Ever since colonisation it’s been claimed, appropriated and hotly-contested for ownership by a radical range of Australian groups. But
for Aboriginal people, the meaning of this heavenly body is deeply spiritual. And just about completely unknown. For a start, the Southern Cross isn’t
even a cross - it’s a totem that’s deeply woven into the spiritual and practical lives of Aboriginal people.
Now one of Australia’s leading filmmakers, Warwick Thornton, tackles this fiery subject head-on in a bold, provocative and poetic essay-film. “We Don’t
Need a Map” asks tough questions about the place of the Southern Cross constellation in the Australian psyche. Imbued with Warwick’s cavalier spirit,
this is a fun and thought-provoking ride through Australia’s cultural and political landscape.
