Sweet Country Sweet Country

Warwick Thornton / Australia / 2017 / 113 min / English

1929 in the Australian outback. In an act of self-defence, Sam, a middle-aged Aboriginal man, kills a cruel and racist war veteran. Now, pursued as the murderer of a white man, he is left with no choice but to escape into the wild with his pregnant wife. This nuanced and exquisitely made film based on true events won the Venice Film Festival award for Best Direction.

»Sweet Country is a Western. It has all the elements of the genre - the frontier, confiscation of land, subordination and conquest of a people and sweeping landscapes / … My main aim is to use the accessibility of the Western genre  for audiences to enter the story and to be drawn into this world and so experience the issues faced by an occupied people. This immersive approach is designed to break down the cultural boundaries between us and bring us together.«
