Two films, starring David Gulpilil, that explore the threats facing Aboriginal culture. In Charlie's Country, with no way to live a traditional lifestyle in his Aboriginal community, aging Charlie (David Gulpilil) struggles to make his own way in life. Finally fed up when his gun, his newly crafted spear and his best friend’s jeep are confiscated, Charlie heads into the wild on his own, to live the old way. However Charlie hasn’t reckoned on where he might end up, nor on how much life has changed since the old days.
Another Country, a documentary narrated by Gulpilil, considers the ramifications of one culture being dominated by another. He gives us first hand insight on the clashes, confusions and chaos between Australian and Aboriginal life.
