Critic Reviews for Zach's Ceremony

All Critics (6)

Personal, intimate and specific... also broad, urgent and vital, painting a portrait of what it means to be a young indigenous Australian.

A touching time capsule of a film.

This is all great, resonant subject matter, and Zach's Ceremony is absorbing despite its lapses into syrupy lyricism and a certain lack of shape.

Zach's Ceremony is a beautifully made and insightful documentary study of Zachariah Doomadgee, and was filmed over a number of years, starting in 2009 when Zach was 10.

The film gets better as it goes along, as if the subjects became increasingly comfortable with the presence of cameras and crew. By the end I didn't want to say goodbye to Zach, imagining a 7 Up!-style program intermittently returning to his life.

The film shows the public and personal pressures confronting Zach, from the historic white dispossession to everyday racism in the schoolyard ... it captures a difficult father and son dynamic that can swing from inspiration to disappointment.
