My Name is Gulpilil

Documentary, Biography 1h 41m 2021

A true icon of Australian cinema, David Gulpilil Ridjimiraril Dalaithngu’s mesmerising, electrifying presence leapt off the big screen and changed Australian screen representation forever. Engaging with the camera like never before, David generously shares his own extraordinary story, in his final film.

“I’m an actor, I’m a dancer, I’m a singer and also, a painter. This film is about me. This is my story of my story.” ~David Gulpilil

Early in 2017, Gulpilil was diagnosed with lung cancer. His doctors estimated he had six months left to live, but David was always likely to defy the odds. He has since passed away after this film was released, on the 29th of November, 2021.
