Goldstone is a frontier mining outpost, where different cultural worlds collide, in an epically beautiful desert landscape. It is a place where Indigenous, and non-Indigenous, people push against each other like tectonic plates. It is a clash of cultures, ideologies and spirits, and it has been happening since “outsiders” first arrived in Australia.
Indigenous Detective Jay Swan arrives in the frontier town of Goldstone on a missing persons inquiry. What seems like a simple investigation opens a web of crime, corruption, trampling of indigenous people’s land rights, and human trafficking. Jay must pull his life together and bury his differences with young local cop Josh, so together they can bring justice to Goldstone.
Winner of four AACTA Awards (Australian version of the Oscars) for Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Cinematography, Goldstone is the latest film from Writer/Director/Director of Photography/Editor/Composer Ivan Sen. Goldstone is a “Neo Western” crossed with “Outback Noir.” It is a crime thriller which moves to the beat of the sacred land it is played out on.
