Gurrumul

Australia 2017 PG Music/Biography 1hr 36min

A portrait of one of Australia’s most celebrated and important voices.

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. ‘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.

This film offers a rare insight into the life of the shy musician beyond the stage and the spotlight. It screens at 7.30pm on Thursday 1 July 2021 in the Killara Centre, Camperdown. Rated PG 1hr 36min.

Warning: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that this content contains images of people who have died. 

$10 entry for guests or $30 for a 3 x film membership subscription. The entry fee includes supper and refreshments after the screening.
