Charlie's Country | Out Now

Living in a remote Aboriginal community in thev northern part of Australia, Charlie (David Gulpilil, Walkabout, Australia) is a warrior past his prime. As the government increases its stranglehold over the community’s traditional way of life, Charlie becomes lost between two cultures. His new modern life offers him a way to survive but, ultimately, it is one he has no power over. Finally fed up when his gun, his newly crafted spear and his best friend’s jeep are confiscated, Charlie heads into the wild on his own, to live the old way. However, Charlie hasn’t reckoned on where he might end up, nor on how much life has changed since the old days...

Directed by Rolf de Heer, CHARLIE’S COUNTRY is the third instalment of his unofficial trilogy, after Ten Canoes and The Tracker, and stars David Gulpilil who received the Un Certain Regard Best Actor award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
