Bringing to Light A History of Ethnographic Filmmaking at the Australian Institute of Aborig... Overview

The title Bringing to Light has two meanings. First, this book is an act of bringing to light a history that was gradually becoming mythologised, in part because the ethnographic films of the past are now rarely seen. Secondly, much of the film-making discussed in this book was motivated by a desire to bring to the light of film the socio-cultural life of Australia's Indigenous peoples.
