This chapter addresses the recent development of` video, film, and television made by, with, and for Aboriginal Australians. It sketches briefly the context for the emergence of Aboriginal media as it has been shaped by the interdependence of specific local situations and historically changing government policies, as well as transformations in consciousness of Aboriginal and Euro-Australians, and in the broader transnational polity known as the fourth world. Of particular interest is how differing notions of selfhood are negotiated through such work: these range from notions of community authorship embedded in indigenous understandings of cultural property and expression, to concepts of self-determination that have emerged in the political struggles of Aboriginal people in relation to the Australian state, to notions of individual self.

Keywords:   video film, imagery, Aboriginal Australians, Aboriginal media, selfhood, community authorship
