GURRUMUL

A PORTRAIT OF AN IMPORTANT AND ACCLAIMED INDIGENOUS ARTIST

IN-CINEMA GIVEAWAY
LATEST REVIEWS
By Charlie David Page
15th April 2018

'Gurrumul' is a portrait of an artist on the brink of global reverence, and the struggles he and those closest to him faced in balancing that which mattered most to him and keeping the show on the road.

In Yolngu lore the name, image and voice of the recently departed is retired from all public use. A very rare exception has been made by Gumatj and Gälpu clan leaders for 'Gurrumul'. Three days before his death he approved this film. It remains unchanged since this time.

Indigenous artist Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu was one of the most important and acclaimed voices to ever come out of Australia. Blind from birth, he found purpose and meaning through songs and music inspired by his community and country on Elcho Island in far North East Arnhem Land. Living a traditional Yolngu life, his breakthrough album ‘Gurrumul’ brought him to a crossroads as audiences and artists around the world began to embrace his music.

To celebrate the release of 'Gurrumul' in cinemas, we're giving you the chance to win a double pass.
