Come Out Fighting

With bold colour, harsh sound & heavy blows, Buesst’s film is a raw & fascinating insight into the ethics and aesthetics of low budget ‘70s Melbourne filmmaking.
A young Aboriginal fighter, played by trained boxer Michael Karpaney, is torn between his career, his mates & the demands of a group of students campaigning for Aboriginal rights.
Featuring some fine performances, the film’s greatest asset is its unflinching & unsentimental gaze on the difficulties a blackfella must face in Australian society. See more
