Filmmaker Molly Reynolds joins the Cinema Australia Podcast to discuss My Name is Gulpilil – her stunning new documentary about one of Australia’s most important actors, and one of our most significant cultural and artistic icons: the unparalleled, David Gulpilil.
As you’ll hear in this interview, Molly has known David for many years. As the partner of Australian directing legend Rolf De Heer, Reynolds has worked with David throughout her career on projects including her 2015 documentary, Another Country – a companion film to De Heer’s Charlies Country.
Here, Molly discusses how this documentary came about, how and when she first met David, the highs and lows of working with the man, and of course Molly shares some great stories about how she made this incredible and elegant new film.
My name Gulpilil is in cinemas nationally from May 27 and I urge everyone to go and see it.
