Introduction

Doorways represent openings and closings in your life. Just as there are external doorways in your house, there are your own internal doorways in your heart. These doorways can lead you into new dimensions of yourself. They are thresholds to your soul through which you can explore wondrous worlds, but you must first be willing to experience the doorways. What's happening with the doors inside of you? Are you experiencing a revolving door where you are caught between the past and the future? Or are you choosing to close a door behind you and preparing to open a new door in front of you? Stand before the doorway. Experience it. When you are ready, open it and cross over a new threshold. Integrating the art of noticing everyday experiences enables us to have a constant change of perspective.

Departing from their community, they journey through the treacherous rough country of north-east Arnhem Land to Darwin. To survive, Lorrpu, Milika and Botj must evoke on the traditional bush education they were taught as boys and, most importantly, the bonds of their friendship. Yolngu Boy is about the search for self awareness, making the rollercoaster ride from adolescence to adulthood and the implications of belonging to a larger social group, whether it be culture, family or friends. In Lorrpu's dream at the start of the movie, we see the initiation of the boys into the tribe, during their younger years. At the end of the film, we see Lorrpu and Milika participating in the ceremony marking their transition into man-hood. But the boys also complete a personal change of perspective by undertaking the journey from Arnhem Land to Darwin.

The choices the boys make between those values help determine their identities. ...read more.
