PRE­MIERE thriller ⊲ Fol­low­ing his ex­ploits in 2013’s out­back-western-cum-crime-thriller Mys­tery

Road, aaron Ped­er­sen’s dogged abo­rig­i­nal de­tec­tive Jay swan un­cov­ers more racism, cor­rup­tion and vi­o­lence when he trav­els to a re­mote Queens­land town to in­ves­ti­gate a miss­ing-per­son case. He cuts a less heroic fig­ure this time, at least ini­tially. In­deed, he hasn’t even reached his des­ti­na­tion be­fore he’s been ar­rested for drunk driv­ing by the cal­low lo­cal cop Josh Wa­ters (alex Rus­sell). How­ever, he’s soon find­ing ev­i­dence of dodgy deal­ing ev­ery­where he looks. Writer-direc­tor Ivan sen ex­plores raw cur­rent is­sues while de­liv­er­ing a com­pelling mix of slow-burn mys­tery and ex­plo­sive ac­tion set against the harsh beauty of the out­back land­scape. Dir: Ivan Sen 2016, 15, 105min
