Wrong Side of the Road
|Wrong Side of the Road|
follows Aboriginal rock-reggae bands No Fixed Address
and Us Mob
A road movie, musical and docu-drama in one, this innovative film inspires and disturbs. Director Ned Lander was determined to 'get under the fingernails to examine the dirt of white Australia's treatment of Aboriginies' (Breen), while introducing filmgoers to Aboriginal rock.
Still shocking in its portrayal of pervasive racism, it is nevertheless an engaging insight into a new generation of Aboriginal and black consiousness regenerating itself through music.
Winner of the Jury Prize at the 1981 AFI Awards.
