6 June 2017 8:14 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Australia’s fantasies about its past are a real problem, says the Indigenous director ahead of the world premiere of his new film, We Don’t Need A Map

Has the symbol of the Southern Cross become comparable to a swastika? That is the provocative question at the heart of Warwick Thornton’s new documentary We Don’t Need a Map.

The Indigenous, Alice Springs-born artist, best-known for directing 2009’s devastatingly brilliant Samson and Delilah, generated considerable controversy when he raised that prospect – expressing concern it was going to happen, rather than stating it had – seven years ago.

Bombshell: The Heddy Lamarr Story proves pretty and smart aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive

Golden Globes: Meryl Streep Calls Out Donald Trump in Cecile B. DeMille Award Acceptance Speech
