SJM indigenous actors shine in 'The Nightingale'

SJM's Magnolia Maymuru and Danzal Baker (aka Baker Boy) star in Jennifer Kent's new feature film 'The Nightingale'. The film has already picked up the Special Jury Prize at Venice 2018.

Australia's dark colonial past is examined in the story of Clare, an Irish-born convict who's served her sentence. But nothing can stop Clare's abuse at the hands of Hawkins, an ambitious and amoral British lieutenant. So begins an unforgettable tale of violence and retribution in which Clare forms an uneasy alliance with a young Indigenous guide named Billy. 'The Nightingale' is frequently brutal and shocking – and necessarily so. Transcending traditional boundaries of the revenge thriller, Kent's savagely beautiful film confronts us with uncomfortable truths about the formation of the Commonwealth we call home.

The film screens as part of the Sydney Film Festival, with one final screening this Wednesday 19 June. Book your tickets HERE and watch the trailer below.
