Abstract:

This Nine Network (Australia) television program called Sunday, discusses and shows excerpts of the classic feature length film, First contact, showing cultural confrontation that is as compelling today as when it was first released in 1982. When Columbus and Cortez ventured into the New World there was no camera to record the drama of this first encounter. But, in 1930, when the Leahy brothers penetrated the interior of New Guinea in search of gold, they carried a movie camera, which they used to record many interactions with various indigenous groups.
