In Prospect Bay, a remote outpost on the South Australian coast, two communities, the Goonyas (whites) and the Nungas (blacks), come together on the one field they have in common, the football field. But the underlying racism and class warfare threatens to make the team's greatest victories irrelevant. This holds particularly true for Blacky, a white teen who is more interested in books than sport, and his best friend, Dumby, the Aboriginal star of the team. Written by
I watched this movie on SBS last night, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Being from South Australia myself it touched me more than i thought it would, as i somehow lost interest in Aussie Rules Football a number of years ago. A simple yet deep movie, & powerful in a supple way. Depicts the separate lives of indigenous / white fellas living together in a rural setting. Where Even when best of mates from each culture can have dramas just being mates, due to the others color . Reminiscent to me of of Another Great South Australian movie - Fire in the stone . Harsh landscapes & arid South Australian land mixed HOT coastline add to it perfectly . Purely South Australian.
GREAT. do enjoy
