Directed by Rolf De Heer
Cast: David Gulpilil, Gary Sweet, Damon Gameau
Renowned Australian aboriginal actor Gulpilil (Walkabout, The Last Wave) gives the performance of a lifetime as the title character in this tale of a manhunt in the Outback in 1922. Against this backdrop, De Heer (Alexandra’s Project, Bad Boy Bubby) utilizes a haunting score and an innovative approach to the film’s extreme violence to create an extraordinary examination of Australian race relations in the not-so-distant past.
Held in conjunction with Ancestral Modern: Australian Aboriginal Art from the Kaplan & Levi Collection
