Transcript of The Sapphires: Culture, Ideology and Identity

"The Sapphires":
Culture, Ideology and Identity
CULTURE
IDEOLOGY
IDENTITY
Conclusion
Citing Maxwell, Ashcroft (2004) identifies two cultural groups: the
settler colonies
and the
invaded colonies
.

“In the case of the settler colonies, land was occupied by European colonists who dispossessed and overwhelmed the Indigenous populations.” (24)






The film emphasises the cultural differences between
white country and western music
, and
black soul music
.
Contextualisation
1960's
AUSTRALIA:
* Aboriginal cultures are
discriminated
by the white settlers.
* Australians called "
Aborigines
" by British settlers are not humans but "
flora or fauna
".
* Aboriginal Protection Act started in 1869  Stolen Generations.
* National Sorry Day since 1998.
* February 2008: Prime Minister's
apology to Aborigines
for the racial discrimination and injustices.

USA:
* Martin Luther King’s assassination.

VIETNAM:
* War against USA

A time of poverty, discrimination, riots and revolution.
“(…) the system of
ideas
that explains, or makes sense of, a
society
, and according to Marx is the mechanism by which
unequal social relations
are reproduced. The
ruling classes
not only rule, they rule as thinkers and
producers of ideas
so that they
determine
how the society sees itself.” (Ashcroft, 2004: 203)




* Before the 1967 Referendum Aboriginals were "flora and fauna"

* Racism and discrimination at any cost.
“A valid and active sense of self may have been eroded by
cultural denigration
, the conscious and unconscious oppression of the indigenous personality and culture by a supposedly superior racial or cultural model”. (Ashcroft, 2004: 9)
