Movie Info

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 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.

Expertly combining performance, tour, media and behind-the-scenes footage, it's a portrait that lives up to the musician at its centre, and one that's as affecting as Yunupingu's haunting songs.

A heartfelt, affectionate and admiring celebration of Yunupingu's success completely on his own terms, it's not a cinematic eulogy but rather a rare and haunting glimpse at one of the country's most significant music talents.

Absolutely answers many questions, while finding it tricky to get into the mind of the man himself ... Revelatory scenes of the creation of Gurrumul and Hohnen's fourth and final studio album, Djarimirri, which was a truly unique, bold and risky venture.

Moving, mesmerising and genuinely from the heart, the extraordinary new Australian documentary holds a mirror to the unique life and music of the late indigenous singer-songwriter Gurrumul Yunupingu.
