Summary
White people don't understand that there are two laws - white people have different laws from Aboriginal people. TWO LAWS is a film about history, law and life in the community of Borroloola in far North Queensland. The films offers viewers a remarkable and different way of seeing and hearing. Like the film, BACKROADS, it is one of the few productions at that time in which Aboriginal people had creative input. The impetus for TWO LAWS came from the community themselves. There was substantial collaboration with the film makers before and during the shooting period. It is one of the most outstanding films to be made during the 1980s. It is an historical analysis of what, nearly forty years later, is an increasingly contemporary question. Two Laws. Reviews: "So substantial in achievement that it makes breathless praise undignified." - Meaghan Morris, Financial Review. "No other documentary has come anything like as close to uncovering the richness and the everydayness of modern aboriginal life, without every romanticising it." - John Hinde, ABC. Producer: The Borroloola Community, Alessandro Cavadini, Carolyn Strachan Director: The Borroloola Community, Alessandro Cavadini, Carolyn Strachan
