Samson & Delilah


Samson & Delilah

Watched this Gem of a film over the weekend. Its a stark realistic approach to the destruction of the aboriginal community in Australia. It focuses on the lives of two young Aborigines living in a small reserve out in the middle of no-where. With not one word spoken between the young lovers it relies on their connection through unspoken communication. Beautifully executed it leaves the viewer cringing and crying with Joy and desperation. Written, directed and shot by Warwick Thorton, Samson an Delilah broke Australian records on its release and also got a Cannes award for first film.

I really recommend this film, it left me feeling very sad that even today we still don’t really except the wholesale destruction of so many indigenous societies with our need for so called urban progress an expansion projects. It was put on in London by Survival International, which is a charity set up solely with the intention to help protect whats left of the lands and rights of these Indigenous people worldwide. A fantastic charity we at FYH completely support and will be writing more about very soon.

    SO wicked to see you promoting this film!! I took a group of hyperactive Aboriginal teens to see it last year in Western Australia – their response blew me away. It’s really exciting to see the film doing so well on the international stage.
