Don’t worry about the world ending; it’s already tomorrow in Australia- Destiny Hoskins
Since the beginnings of cinema in Australia from around 1896, Australian films have charted a range of views of the Australian identity, most specifically Australian Rules directed by Paul Goldman and Sapphires directed by Wayne Blair. Movies like these two gems deserve to be recognised and put into “The Hall of Fame” along with all the other masterpieces produced.
Why are these movies worthy of the limelight you ask? Well for starters both of these movies portray that of our indigenous culture, which is usually left out of films. They display the hardships they endured, and how if we only put aside all of our differences and worked together we could get far.
These movies deserve to be put into the Hall of Fame because they are iconic in their own rights. They display something that is not shown in majority of movies released nowadays. They show us the indigenous culture, and how they integrated within the world. With this it shows a huge amount of racism, which is still a huge problem for the world. Though in the end of both of these films show the audience that if we put all our differences aside and worked together, we could reach the end goal and live in coexistence.

The sheer length of the poem is in itself impressive; its seventeen cantos take Juan through a variety of adventures, including the famous affair with Donna Julia, the sojourn with Haidee, experiences in Turkey and later in Russia as a slave, and finally episodes in England among high society (Boyd 22-30)....
