Filmed on and around the extraordinary Arafura Swamp in north-east Arnhem Land, Ten Canoes is the first Australian feature film to be shot in an Indigenous language. But this is not the only reason why the latest film by acclaimed filmmaker Rolf de Heer is sure to make a lasting impression on Australian film history. Set in the distant past of Australia, before outside contact, Ten Canoes delves into the Ganalbingu mythical past. Dayindi (played by Jamie Gulpilil, son of the renowned actor David Gulpilil) covets one of the wives of his older brother. To teach him the proper way he is told a story from the mythical past-a story of wrong love, kidnapping, sorcery, bungling mayhem and revenge gone awry. Inspired by early photographs showing the 'old ways' of the Arafura Swamp people, de Heer separated the two worlds by contrasting black and white for the distant past with lustrous colour for the magic and drama of the mythical past. Ten Canoes came about from conversations between Rolf de Heer and David Gulpilil, who was keen to have de Heer make a film about his people. Gulpilil is the film's narrator. The production involved Indigenous people from the area at most levels-from collaboration on the script to casting and the selection of locations. The entire cast of the film is local to the Arafura Swamp area, mainly from Ganalbingu and related clans. They also created all the traditional artefacts needed for the film including swamp-specific canoes, dwellings, spears and other weaponry.
