Adelaide Festival

Two weeks in February-March in even-numbered years
Adelaide, South Australia, metamorphosed from an isolated, culturally deprived city to a major center of art and culture worldwide, thanks to a group of visionary businessmen who originated this biennial festival of the arts in 1960. In 2004 the Adelaide Festival program included more than 50 performances, exhibitions, and workshops in dance, music, film, theater, opera, and the visual arts, featuring artists from all over the world. A writers' week is also featured. Events in the festival take place in the Festival Theatre, parks, churches, the Adelaide Town Hall, and other locations.

Commissioned by the Adelaide Festival of Arts, where it world preemed, Rolf de Heer's film is in some ways a companion piece to Phillip Noyce's "Rabbit-Proof Fence": Both are period pieces on the "hot" theme of black-white relationships in Australia, and aboriginal actor David Gulpilil plays a tracker in both films.
