Special preview screening of My Name is Gulpilil across Australian cinemas with a virtual Q&A
Cinemas and audiences across Australia unite to honour living legend!
Ahead of the national theatrical release of My Name is Gulpilil on May 27, cinemas across all states and territories united for a live-streamed, interactive Q&A event, honouring the screen career of Australian living legend David Gulpilil.
A collaborative national event, fitting for such a national cinema icon, the evening will enable audiences from across urban and regional Australia to participate in an intimate conversation about the life, 50 year career, and story of David Gulpilil, with some very special people who have been part of his extraordinary journey:
good friend and screen legend Jack Thompson OAM PhD
actor and filmmaker Damon Gameau (2040, The Tracker)
founding member of Yothu Yindi and producer/star of High Ground Witiyana Marika
Australia’s leading film critic and longtime friend Margaret Pomeranz.
The event will be hosted by media personality, founding member of the acclaimed Marngrook Footy Show and close kin of David, Yolngu woman Leila Gurruwiwi.
Distributor ABCG Film said “Thanks to the support of Screen Australia, cinemas and enthusiastic audiences across the country, our incredible participants, and the wonders of modern technology we are very excited to be able to bring together people from all corners of our geographically massive nation in the name of the one and only David Gulpilil.”
The event is available to be re-streamed at later dates - request it at your local cinema, or check back here for updates!
