  • Venue Upstairs Theatre
  • Dates 07 – 24 Oct 2004

    One of our greatest movie stars, David Gulpilil, has lived his life in two worlds. Taken from school in Marwuyu, Arnhem Land, to appear in Nicholas Roeg’s 1971 film Walkabout, his life is an epic tale of a traditional young Mandipingu man who, without a word of English, rockets to international attention. A man of intense charismatic charm and cultural certainty, for the last 35 years he has maintained an often precarious balance between his traditional life and his work in the film industry.

    Presented by Company B in association with Energex Brisbane Festival 2004 and Adelaide Bank 2004 Festival of Arts
