When a criminal is returned to prison after exposing abuses by guards, tensions between inmates and officers explode in rage, defiance and carnage.
THE NORTH AMERICAN DISC PREMIERE WITH 5+ HOURS OF SPECIAL FEATURES
In 1974, the cruel treatment of inmates at Bathurst Prison in New South Wales, Australia led to violent riots, savage reprisals and a still-controversial official inquiry. Six years later, this "furious, foul-mouthed, open wound of a film" (Bob Ellis, Nation Review) - the feature directorial debut by Stephen Wallace (PRISONERS OF THE SUN) from a screenplay by Bathurst inmate Bob Jewson - dared to tell the inside story: When career criminal China Jackson (Bryan Brown) is returned to prison after exposing abuses by guards, tensions between inmates and officers begin to boil until they explode in rage, defiance and shocking carnage. Max Phipps (THE ROAD WARRIOR, THIRST) co-stars in this "intense and authentic account of a brutal system" (Cinephilia) - nominated for 13 AFI Awards including Best Film, Best Direction, Best Screenplay and Best Actor - scanned in 2K from the 35mm interpositive at The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia.
