The Screen Guide

In the pantheon of Australian outlaw heroes there are no Aborigines. The time has come to add the name of Jandamarra. Jandamarra's War is the story of an Aboriginal warrior who led one of the most effective rebellions in the history of Indigenous peoples' resistance to European colonisation. The one time friend of the white station owners, Jandamarra, a Bunuba warrior of West Kimberley turns against the invading pastoralists to defend his land and culture from decimation, his tactics of retaliation bring him admiration from his own and retribution from the colonists, writing his name into the history books as one of Australia's unsung outlaws.
