Richmond Film Society Presents ‘Sweet Country’£5/3
Richmond Film Society Presents ‘Sweet Country’ (Australia)
16 April 2019 @ 8:00pm
£5 (£3 full-time students). Members go free.
Set in the Australian outback in 1920 and loosely based on an actual case, the film tells the story of a middle-aged Aboriginal farm-hand who, in fear for his life, kills a violent, boorish and racist landowner whilst acting in self-defence. Lacking any faith in the local justice system (“I’m a blackfella who killed a whitefella”), he and his wife flee and are pursued across the bleak and beautiful landscape by the town’s racist police sergeant and his posse.
Directed by Warwick Thornton
Written by David Tranter, Steven McGregor
