WINNER – BEST ACTOR (DAVID GULPILIL) – UN CERTAIN REGARD – CANNES FILM FESTIVAL
Renowned director Rolf de Heer and screen legend David Gulpilil deliver an Australian cinematic masterpiece with Charlie’s Country, their third film collaboration following Ten Canoes and The Tracker. David Gulpilil crowns his career with a mesmerising performance as Charlie. Frustrated with the failures of the government intervention and the ‘whitefella’ laws enforced in his remote community, Charlie takes off to live the old way. But his extraordinary journey leads him full circle, and he returns to his community a wiser man. Through the heartbreaking, humorous and ultimately hopeful story of one man’s search for belonging, Charlie’s Country offers a deeply affecting portrait of contemporary Aboriginal Australia.
Rolf de Heer’s CHARLIE’S COUNTRY received an extended standing ovation at its Cannes Un Certain Regard screening followed by rave reviews. CHARLIE’S COUNTRY is the fourth film from award-winning writer/director/producer Rolf de Heer to premiere in Official Selection at Cannes. His first two features to screen at Cannes, The Quiet Room (1996) and Dance Me To My Song (1998), both screened In Competition.
