'A stunning piece of visual poetry' Film Threat
Rolf de Heer; Australia, 2002, 98min
In 1922, the Tracker (David Gulpilil, of Walkabout and Rabbit-Proof Fence fame) leads three mounted policemen across the outback in pursuit of the Fugitive, an aborigine who is suspected of murdering a white woman. The Tracker is a mysterious and enigmatic figure whose true character remains unknown. As they move deeper into the bush and further away from civilisation, the toxic forces of paranoia and violence begin to escalate, stirring up questions of what is black and what is white, and who is leading whom. Their journey becomes an acrimonious and murderous trek that shifts power from one man to another; challenged both by the indigenous people they come across as well as by each other.
The soundtrack features 10 original songs performed by award-winning musician Archie Roach.
