Un-commit large file that generates error upon push

I'm new to Git and am not a developer, but I've recently started using Sourcetree and Git for version control. I accidentally committed a new file that exceeds 100MB. Now every time I try to push, I get an error message:

myfilename.mp4 exceeds GitHub's file size limit of 100.00MB. 

I don't mind that I can't push that change to the repo, but there are other changes I do need to push and this error is preventing me from doing so. I want to go back as if I never committed the large file to the repo, but still commit all my other changes. Is it possible to do this?
