AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Aaron Pedersen, an Aboriginal actor who’s a major star in Australia, first played the Indigenous detective Jay Swan in the 2013 film “Mystery Road”. Swan is a classic type, the cop caught between his belief in the system and his loyalty to his own people, who automatically see him as a sellout. As embodied by the imposing Mr. Pedersen, he’s also a classic western hero: white hat, casual swagger, stony, squinting stare.' (Introduction)
