Based on the life and stories of Boori Monty Pryor, Wrong Kind of Black is an indigenous narrative comedy-drama that brings a rare perspective to a tumultuous era in Australia’s history.
From the crocs and cops of 1960s Queensland, to the blood-splattered dance floors of Melbourne’s 1970s nightclubs, Monty (played by Clarence Ryan) and his younger brother Paul (Aaron McGrath) reveal the inspiring and sometimes heartbreaking journey of growing up ‘the wrong kind of black’.
