Description

"A lusty tale which keeps generating action until it reaches its powerful climax." QLD TELEGRAPH "Fast-moving, gutsy and entertaining... a rousing tale of survival against the odds." - Variety Far North Queensland, 1955. Deep in the untamed frontier tough rancher Lance Dillon (John Stanton) and his sensual, but bored wife (Rebecca Gilling), battle inhospitable nature to eke out a living from their cattle herd. When the aborigines kill the Dillon's prize bull a chase begins that will culminate in bloody tragedy with Lance pitted against Mandaru (Tommy Lewis) - a proud and defiant tribal aborigine struggling to maintain his cultural way of life. Based on the bestselling novel by Morris West and directed by acclaimed film maker Tim Burstall (Libido, Kangaroo), THE NAKED COUNTRY vividly paints the clash between white and black culture in the 1950s and the love story of a woman and her fight for independence in the beautiful but brutal country of Australia's far north.
