S3 looks at a rather classy film. The Chant of Jimmy Blacksmith follows the life of the titular character as he grows up in colonial Australia to a background of racism. Being a man of both worlds he struggles to make his way until finally he snaps, going on a rampage against those who treated him like a second class citizen.
Based on the true story of Jimmy Governor, Blacksmith looks at the racial pressure behind the story set against the looming federation of Australia.
