“A powerful, bittersweet but optimistic watch about one of the biggest trailblazers in the acting world and indigenous rights”~John Noonan, FILMINK

Aroview: Documentary about Jack Charles, a.k.a. "Jackie", the legendary Australian aboriginal stage and screen actor who was a victim of Australia's forced assimilation policy, but has managed to have a long and varied career as an actor, battling racism, homophobia, drug addiction and criminal impulses on the way. A graceful portrait of a talented artist who has spent his life being oppressed and ostracised by Australian society, but who never lost his spirit and dark sense of humour.
