High Ground film still

Starring Jacob Junior Nayinggul and Simon Baker, High Ground, the second movie in the free Unsettled Film Series tells the story of Gutjuk, who teams up with ex-soldier Travis to track down his uncle Baywara – known as the most dangerous warrior in the Territory.

As the pair journey through the outback they begin to earn each other’s trust, but as the truth about Travis’ past emerges, it is he who becomes the hunted.

Uncovering a violent chapter of this nation’s history, this powerful film explores police brutality and the devastation experienced under colonisation.
