Set in 1929 in Australia’s Northern Territory where segregationist policies are in place, Aboriginal cattle-herder Sam is sent with his wife and niece to work for racist, abusive station owner Harry March. When March goes on a booze-fuelled rampage, an altercation occurs and Sam shoots him in what he claims is self-defence. Worried that the locals will take the law into their own hands, Sam and wife Lizzie go on the run across the vast rural landscapes as a posse gathers to hunt them down. ‘Sweet Country’ examines historical race relations, specifically the indigenous people and lands of Australia, through this epic drama full of arresting visuals.
The extraordinary true story of Solomon Northup, a free black man who was abducted from New York and sold into slavery in 1841.
