Rolf de Heer | 2013 | 108 MINS
With no way to live a traditional lifestyle in his Aboriginal community, aging Charlie struggles to make his own way in life. Charlie takes off to live the old way and sets off a chain reaction of enlightening difficulties.

In Detail

David Gulpilil’s ‘Walkabout’, ‘The Last Wave, ‘Crocodile Dundee’ and ‘Rabbit-Proof Fence’ are among his most famous roles. His performance as the titular character in Rolf de Heer's ‘Charlie's Country’ might get remembered as his most important role.

Gulpilil plays a Yolŋu man living in a remote community with a group of Aboriginal people. Using a combination of bleak realism, fatalistic humour and a healthy dose of sentimentality, de Heer traces the downward spiral of a man who has become a refugee in his own homeland.
