BBE SG High GroundHigh Ground study guide

The BooBook Education study guide for High Ground supports a detailed reading and analysis of the text, with a comprehensive point form synopsis of the Film, key quotes, a discussion of themes, and a vocabulary curated for insightful discussion of the text’s characters, relationships and key ideas.  Sample responses are provided for two of the 25 essay topics. 

The film High Ground directed Stephen Maxwell Johnson and written by Chris Anastassiades was developed over an extended period with the involvement of Indigenous people of the Northern Territory of Australia.

The film is an action drama about the frontier war between Indigenous people and the European station owners and settlers. There is not a lot of dialogue in the script, but the film is much more than an action movie. European colonization of Australia, frontier conflict and the challenge to Indigenous culture and their way of life are clear issues behind the drama.

Trevor Noah was the host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central on American television for seven years. He was born and grew up in South Africa during the apartheid era (1948 to 1994). According to the apartheid laws, Trevor's parents could not marry or have children, so Trevor's birth can be called ‘a crime’. As a mixed-race person, he was classified as 'colored' in accordance with the racist apartheid system. Noah's autobiography of his growing up is largely a tribute to his mother whose courage, sense of purpose, perseverance, and some good luck he largely credits with his eventual world-wide success as a comedian, writer, producer, political commentator, actor, and television host.
