CHARLIE'S COUNTRY screening 14th November 2014
Join us for the third instalment of Rolf de Heer's Aboriginal film trilogy.
Winner Best Actor: Un Certain Regard at Cannes (David Gulpilil)
Rolf de Heer's latest collaboration with David Gulpilil is an honest yet uplifting depiction of modern Australian indigenous culture.
Blackfella Charlie (Gulpilil) is getting older, and he's out of sorts. The intervention is making life more difficult on his remote community, what with the proper policing of whitefella laws that don't generally make much sense, and Charlie's kith and kin seeming more interested in going along with things than doing anything about it. So Charlie takes off, to live the old way, but in doing so sets off a chain of events in his life that has him return to his community chastened, and somewhat the wiser.
Charlie's Country took Cannes by storm.
