A Boy Called Sailboat 5 June 2022 4.30pm

 Join us for the heartwarming A Boy Called Sailboat and Australian- American Film.

In a slanted dwelling beyond the outskirts of a drought-ridden town, a close Hispanic family accept an impossible blessing and name their only son Sailboat. Sailboat stirs new love and hope in his family who forge a simple but proud life in the deep South West of America, but one afternoon he brings home something more: a “little guitar”. From this moment, Sailboat and his ukulele are inseparable, and when his gravely ill grandmother instructs him to write a song for her, Sailboat meanders through adversity to deliver the unimaginable – the greatest song ever written. Will the song breathe one final miracle, or reveal a hapless twist of fate that will return his family to a house held up by a “stick”, a car without doors, an unchanging wardrobe, and a friend who can’t blink?

—Cameron Nugent (Director)

With a haunting soundtrack by the Australian folk legends the Grigoryan Brothers A boy Called Sailboat is not to be missed. 

My Name is Gulpilil Sunday 7 August 2022 5pm 

Nearing the end of his extraordinary, culture-clashing life, the great Australian actor David Gulpilil performs one last time. Engaging with the camera as never before, he calls upon his electrifying, mesmerising screen presence to connect with what is for him, his final audience.

Gulpilil shows us what it was to live a dizzying mix of traditional Aboriginal ways and modern Hollywood excess. He reminisces about his films, from Storm Boy and Crocodile Dundee to Rabbit Proof Fence and Charlie’s Country, and the effects of his fame on a tribal boy from Arnhem Land. 

He explores his worlds of acting, of dancing, and painting…and what it is to stare down death. 

My Name is Gulpilil is directed by Molly Reynolds and produced by Rolf de Heer, Peter Djigirr, David Gulpilil and Molly Reynolds.
