AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Butterss sees Blackfellas breaking with common depictions of Aboriginal men in Australian film, in that it proposes a hybrid model of Aboriginal masculinity, nourished by indigenous traditions, while succeeding within the context of the dominant Anglo culture and economic system. He believes that the film's central slogan, "You're your own boss" helps the film become a comforting narrative for non-indigenous audiences.
