THE CHANT OF JIMMIE BLACKSMITH is an Australian period drama in which a young Aboriginal man turns to crime.

Violence

Men break into family homes and murder the occupants, including children and an infant, with bloody detail. A man, armed with an axe, cuts off the top of a child's head.

There is racist behaviour and language ('nigger', 'abo', 'darkie'), as well as infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t') and more regular strong language ('f**k'). Strong sex scenes feature nudity.
