Clearcut (1991)

A made for TV movie based on a book called “A Dream Like Mine” by M.T. Kelly. Although Clearcut came out in 1991, the subject matter is still very relevant today; the detrimental effects colonialism has had on our environment. My absolute favourite thing about this film is Indigenous veteran actor Graham Greene’s portrayal of the trickster character Arthur, arguably one of his all time best performances.
