Legendary Aboriginal actor David Gulpilil has spent his adult life trying to navigate his way through two very different cultures: that of his Yolngu people and that of the colonising Australian culture. In Another Country, he gives us first-hand insight into the confusions and chaos that occur in the clash between these cultures. At the beginning of last century the Australian Government, along with entrepreneurs, opportunists and 'do-gooders', made a concerted effort to gain control of the lands of the Yolngu people across northern Arnhem Land, along the central part of northern Australia. The long succession of would-be cattle barons, missionaries and government agents failed to dispossess the Yolngu of their lands, but the introduction of their new ways and different laws succeeded in eroding the heart of a complex culture that was once strong, defiant and self-sufficient.


Another Country is a documentary which considers, from the inside, the ramifications of one culture being dominated by another.Watch the trailer Getting there: Please consider using sustainable transport (train, bus, bicycle) to travel to the venue :-)Train/bus: There are buses from the city centre and train service from North Rockhampton train stationParking: Stockland Rockhampton provides free parking directly outside the cinema 7 days per weekAccessibility: The venue and theatre are wheelchair accessible.
