Please note that due to border restrictions outside of our control, elements of this event have been modified to what was initially advertised.  We apologise for the change but still cannot wait to share this film with you.  

Palace Cinemas is proud to announce that Pentridge Cinema will host the Melbourne Premiere of the critically-acclaimed Colonial Western, HIGH GROUND. Join us for a complimentary glass of prosecco on arrival followed by special introductions with Director Stephen Johnson and Producer Maggie Miles in person.  Following the film we’re lucky to now be hosting a virtual panel discussion with cast and filmmakers including Simon Baker, Witiyana Marika, Jacob Junior Nayinggul, Stephen Maxwell Johnson & Maggie Miles, recorded this week in Darwin.

Set against the stunning landscapes of 1930s Arnhem Land, HIGH GROUND chronicles young Aboriginal man Gutjuk (Jacob Junior Nayinggul), who in a bid to save the last of his family teams up with ex-soldier Travis (Baker) to track down Baywara (Sean Mununggurr) —the most dangerous warrior in the Territory, who is also his uncle. As Travis and Gutjuk journey through the outback, they begin to earn each other’s trust, but when the truths of Travis’ past actions are suddenly revealed, it is he who becomes the hunted.

Capturing the ravishing natural beauty of the Northern Territory, director Stephen Johnson has created an engrossing revisionist Western that elevates the stories and voices of Indigenous Australians.
