New Frontiers: Outback Westerns

In anticipation of the release of Leah Purcell’s fierce, feminist Australian revenge western, The Drover’s Wife on Friday 13th May, join us on Saturday 7th May for a double-bill featuring two of the boldest and most subversive contemporary westerns from Down Under with New Frontiers: Outback Westerns.

From Warwick Thornton’s Sweet Country (2017), a masterful and almost biblically scaled dismantling of the concept of ‘frontier justice’, to Jennifer Kent’s brutal and afflicting revenge odyssey The Nightingale (2018), we’ll bear witness to the hard-to-shake realities of racism and misogyny on Australia’s harsh and untamed frontiers.
