Indigenous detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen) returns to his remote hometown and his first case is the murder of a teenage girl. Alienated from his fellow police and his community, including his daughter, he is further thwarted in his investigations by a lack of cooperation from the locals. Jay gradually unravels a complex crime web. In his new film, Ivan Sen uses the conventions of the Western and the police procedural in a subtle examination of the social and political context of a small town in the Australian outback. Directing a stellar Australian cast including Hugo Weaving, and Jack Thompson, Sen’s Mystery Road is all the more remarkable given that he wrote, shot, edited and scored the film.
