A parable of forbidden love from Australia's mythical past, narrated by Australian icon David Gulpilil and starring his son Jamie as the covetous youth Dayindi, TEN CANOES is a ground-breaking glimpse into aboriginal life centuries before European settlement. Shot in and around the Arafura Wetlands of Central Arnhem Land, Rolf de Heer and the People of Ramingining have created a pioneering and timeless tale for all people and all cultures.

"Ahh, you gotta see this story of mine cause it'll make you laugh, even if you're not a blackfella. Might cry a bit too eh? But then you laugh some more...coz this story is a big true story of my people. True thing…"
