Warwick Thornton dismisses the idea that the success of a film is measured by its awards. Rather, he thinks that a film’s success can be determined by how much it changes the world, creates understanding and affects policy. He believes that Indigenous cinema is about telling true stories that have the long-term goal of changing Australia and encouraging Indigenous people to address issues that need their action. Thornton made Samson and Delilah to reveal how hard life is for Indigenous children but also to show their beauty, resilience and strength.
