AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In this chapter Collins and Davis argue that the paradigm shift caused by the Mabo decision impacted on Australian historical consciousness forcing a reassessment of 'race relations', the colonial past and the moral legitimacy of non-Aboriginal national identity. In the aftermath of Mabo the authors examine how cinema is implicated in the process of reviewing and understanding the Australian past.
