In Detail

Think of an Anthony Mann Western made by an experimental film director, and you get an indication of the challenging components of this film. The story of a manhunt that is politically sensitive because of its depiction of atrocities perpetrated on aboriginals by a fanatical white cop.

On the surface, this is a pared-down, muscular outdoor drama set in 1922 ‘somewhere in Australia,’ in which an aboriginal tracker (Gulpilil), on foot, leads two mounted policemen and a civilian on the track of a black fugitive. A haunting and uniquely Australian western.
