'Jim and Phil Krakouer took the Australian football world by storm in the early 1980s. Their unique and anarchic brand of football, dubbed ‘black magic’, captured the imagination of the nation.
Debuting with the ‘blue blooded’ Claremont FC in Perth, the boys propelled the Tigers to their first Grand Final in decades. In Melbourne they reached new heights with the mighty Kangaroos until injury and personal drama undid their careers.
Regarded as two of the greatest AFL players in history, the Krakouer brothers played in a not-so-distant time when racism was rife and professional Aboriginal footballers were rare. Krakouer! is the story of the challenges they faced in the rise to the top of their game, their skill, daring and resilience, both on and off the sporting field and the controversy and adversity they met throughout their lives' (Seymour Centre website sighted 25/07/2011)
