Ernie Dingo delivers an outstanding portrayal of Robert Tudawali, the first Aboriginal film star, whose lead role in 'Jedda' is iconic in Australian cinema.The film traces the life of Tudawali from the moment that he was selected to play the lead in 'Jedda', his career as a boxer when he was unable to find more film roles, right through to his premature death at around age 40 from severe burns.
It also portrays the stark contrast between Tudawali's home outside Darwin, and his life in Sydney, where he did most of his filming for movies and TV series.
This powerful and important story also stars Charles 'Bud' Tingwell and serves as a vital document on Australian film history and Aboriginal culture.
