ARTS THURSDAY 1 March – Anni Finsterer in ‘Sweet Country

Anni Finsterer on the set of Sweet Country

Arts Thursday 1 March, presented by Bronwyn Rennex


The lovely actor, singer, writer, voice artist Anni Finsterer discusses her role in Warwick Thornton’s ‘Sweet Country’

Sweet Country is a period western, set in the late 1920s on the Northern Territory frontier, where justice itself is put on trial. Inspired by real events, Sweet Country follows what happens when Aboriginal stockman Sam (Hamilton Morris) kills white station owner Harry March (Ewen Leslie) in self-defence, Sam and his wife Lizzie (Natassia Gorey-Furber) go on the run. They are pursued across the outback, through glorious but harsh desert country.

My music selection, songs from film soundtracks, is in response to Warwick’s bold decision to have no music in his film. He allows the sounds and sights of the desert be the backdrop to the action.
