◖ 1:25 ◖ Doc­u­men­tary ◖ In­ter­na­tional and do­mes­tic flights Di­rec­tor War­wick Thorn­ton In this fun, thought-pro­vok­ing doc­u­men­tary, film­maker War­wick Thorn­ton – the man be­hind Sam­son & Delilah, win­ner of the Caméra d’Or at the 2009 Fes­ti­val de Cannes – asks what the South­ern Cross means to­day. The film got its start in 2010 when Thorn­ton, an Aus­tralian of the Year nom­i­nee, met with outcry af­ter call­ing out the South­ern Cross sym­bol’s racist con­no­ta­tions. Here, he traces the con­stel­la­tion’s In­dige­nous and colo­nial his­tory and mod­ern in­ter­pre­ta­tions, speak­ing with as­tronomers, Abo­rig­i­nal Aus­tralians, rap­pers and tat­tooists.
