Aaron Pedersen (Detective Jay Swan) and Alex Russell (Josh Waters) in GOLDSTONE

Indigenous Detective Jay Swan arrives in the frontier mining town of Goldstone on a missing persons enquiry. What seems like a simple ”light duties” investigation soon opens into a web of crime and corruption implicating the local Mayor, mining boss and Aboriginal Land Council.

Writer/Director Ivan Sen follows up the critically acclaimed MYSTERY ROAD with this masterful outback thriller, featuring outstanding performances from a stellar cast, including Aaron Pedersen, reprising his role from MYSTERY ROAD, Alex Russell (CHRONICLE), Oscar-nominee Jacki Weaver (SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, ANIMAL KINGDOM), David Wenham (THE LORD OF THE RINGS), David Gulpilil (THE PROPOSITION) and Cheng Pei-Pei (CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON).
