Charlie’s Country


With director Rolf de Heer in person

Dir. Rolf de Heer. Australia, 2013, 108 mins. New York premiere. David Gulpilil, who debuted as a teen actor in Nicolas Roeg’s Walkabout, co-wrote this loosely autobiographical drama about an aboriginal man having trouble fitting in with contemporary society. DeHeer’s leisurely pacing and attention to landscape perfectly complements the quiet intensity of Gulpilil’s performance, which earned him the Un Certain Regard Best Actor prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
