High Ground

Dir: Stephen Maxwell Johnson / Australia

Synopsis : 1919. WW1 sniper Travis, now a policeman in the vast and remote landscape of Northern Australia, loses control of an operation resulting in the massacre of an Indigenous tribe. With his superior officers intent on burying the truth Travis leaves disgusted before being forced back twelve-years later in the hunt for outlaw Baywara, an Aboriginal warrior attacking new-settlers.

Recruiting Gutjuk as his Tracker, Travis realises this young mission-raised Indigenous man is the only known massacre-survivor. When the truths of Travis’ past actions are suddenly revealed, it is Travis who becomes the hunted.
