This is a study guide for the film Thomson of Arnhem Land (John Moore, 2000), which tells the story of Australian anthropologist, photographer and journalist Donald Thomson and his lifelong struggle for Aboriginal rights. As well as telling the story of Thomson's life and work, the film also gives an insight into the personality clashes and politics behind the assimilationist policies that aimed to deny Indigenous Australians their culture. The fim will have interest and relevance for senior students of Humanities, History, Anthropology, Indigenous Studies, English, Drama, Photography and Media Arts.
