"The Tracker" A Black History Month Special: Black Like Me
Doc Watchers and the African Film Festival present the film "The Tracker" as part of A Black History Month Special: Black Like Me, a two night screening series looking at the current Australian Aborigine black power movement.
(Rolf de Heer, 2002, 98 min.)
The year is 1922 in this docu-drama. The Tracker (David Gulpilil) has the job of pursuing a fugitive, an aborigine who is suspected of murdering a white woman, as he leads three mounted policemen across the outback. As they move deeper into the bush and further away from civilization, 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.
