CHARLIE'S COUNTRY

DIRECTOR: ROLF DE HEER - AUSTRALIA

This year’s Australian submission for the Best Foreign Film Oscar features a soulful performance from David Gulpilil, who received the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival. Gulpilil is Charlie, a restless elder in alcohol-free Arnhem Land reservation who feels the government’s growing grip on his culture while he decries the rapid disappearance of Yolngu traditions.
