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.
