This article examines the innovative film-making approaches taken in Michael Edols' three films (Lalai Dreamtime; Floating, Like Wind Blow 'em About This Time; and When the Snake Bites the Sun), profiles their political, critical and popular reception (including amongst Aboriginal people and analyses the insights they afford into the disciplines of film-making, ethnography and into broader questions of intercultural dialogue. At a time of increased media and political interest in the plight of Aboriginal people in remote communities, they also contribute to our knowledge of the history of one such community.
