Poster for My Name Is Gulpilil

Documentary on the life and work of David Gulpilil, indigenous actor and icon of Australian cinema. More

"His mesmerising, electrifying presence has leapt off the big screen and changed Australian screen representation in the process. Integral to the telling of so many legendary screen stories, Gulpilil, now nearing the end of his life, generously shares his own story... The actor, dancer, singer and painter takes us boldly on the journey that is his most extraordinary, culture-clashing life. From his breakthrough performance in Walkabout (1971) to today, Gulpilil is known throughout the world for his unforgettable performances.

"Early in 2017 Gulpilil was diagnosed with lung cancer. His doctors estimated six months for him but David, being David, was always likely to defy the odds. And he continues to do so with probably his last great work, My Name is Gulpilil." (Official synopsis)
