The Tall Man The Tall Man
The Tall Man, Madman DVD

“Tony Krawitz’ documentary The Tall Man painfully captures the horrendous ambiguities surrounding the death of Mulrunji Cameron Doomadgee on Palm Island in 2004 and the failure to convict police sergeant Chris Hurley for his part in the man’s death. Like Chloe Hooper’s award winning book of the same title, this is a film that attempts to deal with both (or more) sides of a story that is deeply complex given the character of Queensland colonialism, its police history and the cruel peculiarities of Palm Island....[The film is] an indictment of a system that has ruined the lives of Indigenous people and then held them guilty for the outcome.” Keith Gallasch, RT102.

First Australians, 7 Documentaries, Madman DVD

Another in Madman’s Stories That Matter series is the award-winning and groundbreaking, epic series First Australians written and directed by Rachel Perkins with fellow writer-director Beck Cole and writer Louis Nowra, and produced by Perkins with David Dale and SBS. “First Australians chronicles the birth of contemporary Australia as never told before, from the perspective of its first people. First Australians explores what unfolds when the oldest living culture in the world is overrun by the world’s greatest empire. Over seven documentaries, First Australians depicts the true stories of individuals–both black and white—caught in an epic drama of friendship, revenge, loss and victory in Australia’s most transformative period of history” (press release). Superb viewing.
