This is a study guide for the film Yolngu Boy (Stephen Johnson, 2001). Caught in a collision between the modern world and the oldest living culture on Earth, Lorrpu, Botj and Milika are three Yolngu teenagers who once shared a childhood dream of becoming great hunters together. But things have changed and their paths are diverging. Botj is walking on the wild side and Milika is more interested in football and girls; only Lorrpu seems to care about the dream anymore. Yolngu Boy is about the search for identity, making the journey from adolescence to adulthood and the implications of belonging to a larger social group, whether it be a culture, a family or a group of friends. The film and accompanying study guide are relevant to students in Years 9–12 studying Australian History, Social and Cultural Identity, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures, Civics and Citizenship, English, Personal Development and Media Arts.
