Trailer of the Day: Westwind: Djalu’s Legacy

 

Westwind: Djalu’s Legacy

Directed by Ben Strunin
Starring Djalu Gurruwiwi, Larry Gurruwiwi and Gotye

An ageing tribal elder, a didgeridoo master and custodian of an ancient dreaming has no-one to inherit his sacred and esoteric traditional songlines. His son’s are consumed by the modern world; one blinded by the light, the other by depression. Djalu seeks a way forward. The answer comes from an unlikely place. He sets out to make a film, a film that will take him to the world and in an emotional climax find a willing custodian for the next generation.

Westward: Djalu’s Legacy will have its world premiere at this year’s Melbourne International Film Festival. Details here.
