Screening at the CANBERRA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL on Sunday 5 November 2017 at 1.00pm.
“We Don't Need A Map is a punk-infused road trip into the history of the Southern Cross in both popular and Indigenous culture” (Daniel Bowning, ABC). Award winning Australian director Warwick Thornton (SAMSON AND DELILAH) brings a quirky brand of humour to this irreverent and deeply insightful documentary. Thornton looks to the stars and sees a constellation steeped in symbolism and stigma. His film delivers a range of perspectives from creation stories and ceremony, to nationalist pride. Amongst the voices represented is local Queanbeyan poet and writer Omar Musa. It is not hard to see why this film was chosen to open the Sydney Film Festival this year. This wildly entertaining essay film is sure to become a popular Australian classic.
