Aboriginal Peoples and film and television – Option 6
An Aboriginal Studies unit where students explore the role of film and television in Australia in the development of non-Aboriginal people’s perceptions and understanding of Aboriginal Peoples and cultures.
Students develop skills to analyse a variety of contemporary films, documentaries and television shows that deal with Aboriginal issues, including those written by Aboriginal Peoples as well as non-Aboriginal people. Students are expected to explore this option with reference to their local Aboriginal community. The case study on the local Aboriginal community’s experience with film and television can form the basis through which this option is studied, or it can be undertaken separately at any point throughout the option.
