This film is an achingly beautiful Australian story that I hope all
Australians see.It tells the story of an Aboriginal community in all of
its daily life and daily struggles. The film is a junction point in the
life of Daniel. His family life is dominated by parents using alcohol
and drugs, a family life that has been destroyed by the removal of
children from their families. School is a daily struggle. He develops a
friendship with the local drug dealers and the film is about the story
that unfolds from there.
The film is important because it weaves a personal story of a community
into the wider indigenous Australian story. The themes that this film
is dealing with are immense yet at no time do they overwhelm the film.
Themes of loss of language, cultural identity, substance abuse,
education, the high suicide rate and incarceration of Aboriginal people
in Australia are all deftly woven into the story without you even
The director Ivan Sen is a marvel - to have extracted the performances
that he has from the residents of Toomelah is simply extraordinary. In
speaking about the film he revealed that Daniel was never present
during any of the traumatic scenes. Furthermore he revealed how he
spent time in Toomelah before writing the film and that almost all of
the dialogue is taken from conversations he heard while he was there.
Writing the film was about putting a structure to the film and weaving
the dialogue into place.
While to many of us the community of Toomelah may be confronting, as
Ivan Sen the director pointed out that this is very much in the
perception of the viewer. Toomelah is also a place of great beauty.
Ultimately it painted a real picture of the despair of these
communities because of the lack of hope and opportunities. The film,
for me, was all about what does the future hold for a young boy growing
up on an Aboriginal community. In this sense the film is both bleak
while offering a gleam of hope....
I highly recommend this film, get out and see it whenever you can.
