High Ground (MA 15+)

High Ground movie poster

Set against the stunning landscapes of 1930s Arnhem Land, High Ground chronicles young Aboriginal man Gutjuk, who in a bid to save the last of his family teams up with ex-soldier Travis to track down Baywara—the most dangerous warrior in the Territory, who is also his uncle. As Travis and Gutjuk journey through the outback they begin to earn each other’s trust, but when the truths of Travis’ past actions are suddenly revealed, it is he who becomes the hunted.

Cast: Simon Baker, Jacob Junior Nayinggul, Caren Pistorius, Jack Thompson

Director: Stephen Johnson

★★★★ "an enthralling addition to a new canon of films about historical injustice to our First Peoples" - SCREEN HUB

"a visually ravishing and commendably nuanced frontier saga with a timely anti-racist message" - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"in the magnetic Nayinggul, superb as the boy on the brink of manhood who must choose whether to reject anger or embrace it, the film showcases a notable new talent." - SCREEN DAILY

"a harrowing and deeply moving exploration of Australia’s blood-drenched history" - GLAM ADELAIDE

"With grounded and moving performances from the cast (especially Nayinggul), it is a vital film that, importantly, has been created — starring and produced — by members of the Yolngu people, giving a voice to a shameful part of history that now needs to be told." - FILM DAZE
