Dates and times

3 Nov 2020 - 19 Nov 2020

Online Event

High Ground is a gripping colonialist revenge thriller set just after the First World War, spectacularly shot in the Australian outback. Ex-sniper Travis recruits the indigenous 19-year-old Gutjuk, to track down his uncle, the leader of the Aboriginal mob that terrifies the Territory. Travis is forced to trust his new recruit and teach him to survive, while Gutjuk must risk everything to find his place between two worlds. Director Stephen Johnson worked closely with Aboriginal communities to develop a story that realistically and movingly brings their history to light.
