The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith

A half-caste aborigine declares war on his racist homeland in Fred Schepisi's harrowing, visceral, epic drama that masterfully evokes the landscapes, tribal mysteries, and contradictions of the Australian continent.
Critic Jonathan Rosenbaum calls Jimmie Blacksmith “a figure of extraordinarily ambiguous epic proportions--a Nat Turner seen in Brechtian terms” (Soho News).
