My Longest Round

Gaele Sobott, Wally Carr
The life story of Australian and Commonwealth champion boxer Wally Carr. A powerful biographical story about the journey of a young Wiradjuri boy, Wally Carr, escaping the dreaded Aboriginal Welfare Board – a journey from the heartbreak and crushing loneliness of childhood to the mean streets of Sydney’s Redfern. From hunting goannas, Jimmy Sharman’s boxing tents, rugby league, professional boxing and the first Aboriginal Tent Embassy, to present-day struggles and lifestyles, My Longest Round offers a vital snapshot of Aboriginal and Australian history.
