David Gulpilil Retrospective

13 Mar 2021 - 14 Mar 2021
Next Occurrence : 13 Mar 2021
Price from $13

Overview

As actor, dancer, storyteller and educator, Yolngu man David Gulpilil’s place in the history of Australian film can’t be overstated. 2021 marks fifty years since screen audiences first experienced this consummate performer, a presence that forever swept away servile “yes-boss” caricatures (often performed by white actors) and left us in awe of a 60,000-year cultural continuum.

Professor Megan Davis describes him as “easily the greatest actor this country has ever had” and that “his oeuvre speaks to the unresolved grievance this country bears”. David has chosen eight of the many films in which he has played a crucial role, for this half-century retrospective.
