Event description

Description

Legendary Aboriginal actor David Gulpilil has spent his adult life trying to navigate his way through two very different cultures: that of his Yolngu people and that of the prevailing Australian culture. In Another Country, he gives us first-hand insight into the confusions and chaos that occur in the clash between these cultures.

At the beginning of last century the Australian Government, along with entrepreneurs, opportunists and 'do-gooders', made a concerted effort to gain control of the lands of the Yolngu people across northern Arnhem Land, along the central part of northern Australia. The long succession of would-be cattle barons, missionaries and government agents failed to dispossess the Yolngu of their lands, but the introduction of their new ways and different laws succeeded in eroding the heart of a complex culture that was once strong, defiant and self-sufficient.

Another Country is a documentary which considers, from the inside, the ramifications of one culture being dominated by another.

LIVE MUSIC with DAVY SIMONY
Davy Simony is a folk-roots singer-songwriter originally from Kuranda, a village in the rainforest of Far North Queensland. Now based in Melbourne, Davy has been making waves in the local scene for the past few years, as well as touring nationally and internationally.

With influences that span from Angus & Julia Stone to Fat Freddy's Drop, Simony’s work is defined by his grounded and heartfelt style of songwriting. His live performances are not to be missed. Boasting the powerful energy of a ‘one-man-band,’ Simony takes to guitar, foot percussion and live loops.
