Aboriginal Architecture

Note: Paul Rickard, someone from the village I grew up in, is the one who made this film. Should be interesting... Haven't seen any of his filmography, but he takes beautiful still pictures...

Duration: 01:00 hour(s)

A feature length documentary that explores the way Aboriginal architecture reflects the diversity of Aboriginal cultures across North America. Traditional and ceremonial buildings reflect all aspects of life in a particular region and time. Architectural designs were affected by technology, climate, society, religion, economics, and history. The film will explore the way Aboriginal architecture continues to evolve in response to ongoing changes in the natural and social environment.Anyone who has an interest in ancient culture, art, architecture and the history of North America will be fascinated by the innovative approach driven by the passions and fresh perspectives of these intelligent, articulate young people. This program will be especially attractive to aboriginal youth. They'll be able to identify with the main characters who are remarkable role models; academically successful and active participants in their own communities as well as being open-minded and curious about other communities.
