Director Aaron Petersen (not the actor Aaron Pedersen) will be a special guest at BOFA 2016. He took 10 years to film this extraordinary, feature-length documentary that shows one boy’s journey to manhood. Its themes are universal: that of family and connection, but the film also explores the fascinating question of what it means to be a modern man belonging to the oldest living culture on earth. Aaron Petersen’s camera followed Zach from the age of 10 to 16 as he moves between the city and his ancestral country, and offers a rare and privileged glimpse of Aboriginal ceremony and ritual.
THURSDAY 1pm. ANNEXE THEATRE (with Director’s Q & A)
