DIRECTED BY ROLF DE HEER

Australia, 2013, DCP, 108 min.

The great aboriginal Australian actor David Gulpilil makes a triumphant return to the screen in Rolf de Heer’s realistic representation of life on a rural aboriginal settlement. Gulpilil, as the title character Charlie, becomes fed up with the “whitefella” ways and longs to hunt for game and live in the bush in the way his forefathers taught him. While he is continually blocked by the authorities for doing so and absorbed into a soul-crushing system, he fights back in a number of small and vital ways. Gulpilil won the Best Actor Award in the Un Certain Regard category at Cannes for his transcendent performance.
