Staking a Truth Claim: Constructing a Document in 'Two Laws'

Metro Magazine: Media & Education Magazine
Issue 150 (2006)

Abstract: The documentary 'Two Laws' constitutes a legal document in support of the Borroloola claim to their land and contributes to the decolonisation of the images of Aboriginal Australia, which have circulated within ethnographic cinema, television journalism and fiction film. The 'two laws' of the film's title refer to white law and 'the Law', the system which regulates Borroloola social interactions and relationships with the land.
