Bringing to Light: A History of Ethnographic Filmmaking at the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies

The title Bringing to Light has two meanings. First, this book is an act of bringing to light a history that was gradually becoming mythologised, in part because the ethnographic films of the past are now rarely seen. Secondly, much of the filmmaking discussed in this book was motivated by a desire to bring to the light of film the socio-cultural life of Australia’s Indigenous peoples.
