Frame on Dreaming

Australia, 1984 (MIFF 1985)

Director: Josko Petkovic

"... It is an Art Festival - one is told. The aboriginals sing, paint, dance...perform, this I suppose is the 'Art' aspect of it. Behind the label, however, we know that these activities are connected with the very essence of their culture, with Dreaming... What meaning does 'Art' have for these artists whose land was stolen from them?"

- Josko Petkovic
