|The Last Wave|
Peter Weir's fascinating chiller stars Richard Chamberlain as an Australian lawyer drawn into a murder trial, defending Chris (David Gulpilil) of killing a fellow tribesman.
Hoping to get the accused aquitted on the grounds that the act was tribally sanctioned, the lawyer finds the remains of indigenous civilisation still existing under the city streets.and that his own heritage is not what he thought. The Last Wave
was one of the first films to address the cultural divide between white Australians and indigenous populations.
