DIRECTOR
SWEET COUNTRY (2018)
Starring Sam Neill, Bryan Brown, Thomas M. Wright, Ewen Leslie, Matt Day, Anni Finsterer, Natassia Gorey Furber, Gibson John and Hamilton Morris. Directed by Warwick Thornton.

Inspired by real events, Sweet Country is a period western set in 1929 in the outback of the Northern Territory, Australia. When Aboriginal stockman Sam kills white station owner Harry March in self-defence, Sam and his wife Lizzie go on the run. They are pursued across the outback, through glorious but harsh desert country.

Sergeant Fletcher leads the posse with the help of Aboriginal tracker Archie and local landowners Fred Smith and Mick Kennedy. Fletcher is desperate to capture Sam and put him on trial for murder – but Sam is an expert bushman and he has little difficulty outlasting them. Eventually, for the health of his pregnant wife, Sam decides to give himself up. He is put on trial in the courtroom of Judge Taylor. But will justice be served?

REVIEWS Sweet Country - A thunderous Australian masterpiece

THE DARKSIDE (2014)
Starring Deborah Mailman, Bryan Brown, Claudia Karvan, Aaron Pedersen, Sacha Horler and Ben Quilty. Directed by Warwick Thornton.

Aboriginal people live on the threshold of two worlds – one of everyday reality and the other of spirits, demons and entities. They can live an ordinary life with dead ancestors and demons all vying for space. Although they might seem stoic and complacent, with the clash of these two worlds the reality is we should all be scared shitless.
