Toomelah is a 2011 Australian drama film written and directed by Ivan Sen. It was shown at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival on 11 May in the Un Certain Regard program. The story is set at the Toomelah Aboriginal Mission in New South Wales.
Daniel is a ten-year-old boy living at the Toomelah Aboriginal Mission. He wants to be a gangster and helps out Linden, the local drug dealer. Bruce—one of Linden's rivals—is released from prison and a turf war erupts. Meanwhile, Daniel's aunt returns to the mission years after being removed as a child, as one of the Stolen Generations.
