AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Samson and Delilah (2009), a new Australian film by Warwick Thornton, opens with the dawning of a new day in an Aboriginal community outside Alice Springs. Its inhabitants, among them Samson (Rowan McNamara), a teenage boy with a shock of blond hair, and Delilah (Marissa Gibson), a teenage girl who cares for her artist grandmother, begin their daily routines. From the opening shot of this excellent film, the viewer feels that they are getting the story first-hand, in a fictional narrative imbued with a degree of authenticity rare in contemporary cinema.'
