About The Film
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.
I’m an actor, I’m a dancer, I’m a singer and also, a painter. This film is about me. This is my story of my story. David Gulpilil Ridjimiraril Dalaithngu
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.
My Name is Gulpilil is directed by Molly Reynolds and produced by Rolf de Heer, Peter Djigirr, David Gulpilil and Molly Reynolds.
About the Workshop
Starting from 1pm on Sunday the 25 July learn indigenous weaving with Culture on the Move. You can finish off your weaving while taking in the gorgeous story My Name is Gulpilil.
The Culture on the Move team are passionate about their Aboriginal Heritage. They share culture to a wide range of people from children to seniors, Indigenous and non-Indigenous.
Culture on the Move offers a variety of different workshops that include traditional coil weaving (taught by Aunty Jenny Dries), traditional games, animal and doll making (inspired by Tjanpi Desert Weavers) and enjoys sharing their knowledge on bush tucker plants.
