Indigenous film Mad Bastards had its world premiere at the Sydney Festival last week and featured a performance by the Pigram brothers and Alex Lloyd before the film was screened. It is now in competition at the Sundance Film Festival.
The film follows, TJ is a hard-edged Aboriginal man who's sick of scraping out an existence in the city. He travels to the tiny frontier town of Five Rivers in search of his son. Upon his arrival, TJ is confronted by the equally tough local cop Texas… and so begins a story about hard men battling to do the right thing by their family.
