Abstract

In animation two interesting case studies reveal differing non-indigenous responses to the challenge of addressing Aboriginal culture: Len Lye's "Tusalava"(1929) and the lesser known Waterside Workers' Federation Film Unit initiative "Land of Australia: Aboriginal Art" (1956) animated by Harry Reade (1927-1998).

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
