The Dreaming Series

Kanopy (Firm)
Format

Summary
This famous series of animated films are based on Australian Aboriginal storytelling (oral histories) that have been maintained as a body of knowledge for over 40,000 years. There are 6 parts to the complete series, and each looks at unique indigenous stories, beautifully animated by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. Children love them and adults are amazed at what they learn about Australia and its indigenous legacy from each story. The stories tell us things about the land, animals and birds, the trees, waterholes, rivers, sea life, the stars, society and behaviour, lore, morals and respect, and cultural diversity. Many dreaming stories share with us the historic beliefs about the creation of the world and the spiritual life in all things that exist. Each animated story is supported by a story background and storyteller profile documentary. Included in each series is an additional video about an aspect of The dreaming.
