Reading Samson and Delilah - Letter from Australia

Many critics are acknowledging Warwick Thornton's Samson and Delilah as Australia’s cinematic masterpiece of all time. The film is so rich that volumes can be written about it. In this Letter from Australia we see the film as emerging from a flukey creative space that has emerged around grass roots community media organisations like CAAMA in Alice Springs and Goolarri in Broome. It is time to get serious about funding and investing in these creative anchor points for an Aboriginal film and media renaissance.
