The Last Wave (Weir, 1977): Prince Charles Cinema, 6.10pm

This 35mm screening is part of the Animus Magazine season devoted to Peter Weir.

Chicago Reader review:
Richard Chamberlain plays an Australian lawyer whose defense of a group of aborigines accused of ritual murder sparks dark dreams of the apocalypse. Peter Weir’s 1977 thriller isn’t free of the metaphysical baloney that buried his Picnic at Hanging Rock, but it’s a much more effective film in genre terms—Weir does manage to deliver the goods
Dave Kehr

Here (and above) is the trailer.
