Director Warwick Thornton attends the screening on Mon 26 Feb

Warwick Thornton’s ravishing, agonising western is inspired by true events and set in Australia’s Northern Territory in 1929. Aboriginal stockman Sam (Hamilton Morris) works the land for kindly Christian preacher Fred Smith (Sam Neill). When vicious war veteran Harry Morris (Ewen Leslie) returns to the area it is the start of tensions in which Sam is forced to defend himself. His subsequent flight sparks a manhunt led by Sergeant Fletcher (Bryan Brown). As Sam and his wife travel through the heat and dust of the outback, his plight exposes all the injustices of colonialism.
