Biography

Warwick Thornton was born and breed in Alice Springs, Australia and lives there to this day. His family is the Kaytej people from just north of Alice Springs. Warwick found his love of cinema when he became a camera trainee at CAAMA (the first aboriginal production company in Australia). He went to the AFTRS in the early nineties to study Cinematography and then ended up writing and directing his own short films and documentaries. In 2009, his first feature film SAMSON & DELILAH was released to international acclaim, winning awards and recognition from Cannes to Cairns. He was the cinematographer on THE SAPPHIRES and more. Recently, he started making art -yep the stuff of art galleries folks. He popped himself on a cross in the 3D video and photographic series STRANDED, he put 'Mother Courage' in a van and took her to a posh art fair in Germany called Documenta and he created a photographic series where put himself in the picture as a priest, a cowboy and a policeman for an exhibition called 'Debil Debil'. Warwick's fascination with spirituality has now crossed over to the other side and he would love you to come on that journey with him through the film project of THE DARKSIDE and the online project of THE OTHERSIDE.
