The first two volumes in the series, which is based on the British Film Institute film studies, will be The Devil's Playground and The Mad Max Trilogy by Adrian Martin. The series aims to (re)introduce Australians to their own screen history and broaden their knowledge of screen culture.
Raised by missionaries, Jimmie Blacksmith, a young half-castle Aboriginal man, is poignantly caught between the ways of his black forefathers and those of the white society to which he aspires. Exploited by his boss and betrayed by his [white] wife, he declares war on his white employers and goes on a violent killing spree.
