David Gulpilil has forever changed the way Australian film represents Indigenous people and their cultural heritage.
A Yolngu man from Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, he is a dancer, actor, musician and storyteller. His first acting role - in Nicolas Roeg's Walkabout (1970) - began a career that has spanned over 40 years. He's acted in some of Australia's most iconic films, including Storm Boy (Henri Safran, 1976), Crocodile Dundee (Peter Faiman, 1986) and Rabbit-Proof Fence (Phillip Noyce, 2002).
In this collection we see the breadth of Gulpilil's talent and many of the roles he's played. We also learn more about his life, cultural heritage and country.
WARNING: this collection may contain names, images or voices of deceased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
