SWITCH: 'GURRUMUL' TRAILER
Celebrated by audiences at home and abroad, 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 Arnhemland. 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.
'Gurrumul' is 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.
This film is both a fitting epitaph for a musical legend as well as a timely reminder that there is still far too great of a gap for Indigenous Australians in the area of health and life expectancy.
