The Tall Man is the story of Palm Island, a tropical paradise in Australia’s Far North. Based on the award-winning book by Chloe Hooper, it’s a gripping and provocative film that exposes the inescapable complexities of Australia’s racial politics, and a haunting moral puzzle that no viewer will forget. And Crikey has free double passes to screenings across the country.
