IFF - Charlie's Country
(Australia, Rolf de Heer, 2013, 108 mins)
David Gulpilil (Walkabout) won a Best Actor award at Cannes for his portrayal of Charlie, an aborigine who feels out of place in his own country. After the police confiscate his handmade spear, Charlie goes into the bush to find freedom from white rule, only to run afoul of the law again when illness brings him back to civilization.
Compelling, poignant, sometimes funny stories, both true and fiction, from around the world are screened at the International Film Festival in Trenton, New Jersey. Experience some of the most exquisitely beautiful and thought-provoking film that we screen! In 2015, a theme of cross-cultural encounters or collisions runs through many of the films, from IN THE CROSSWIND, an Estonian film which chronicles mass deportation under the Soviet's to the sometimes poignant, sometimes comic interaction between Australian caucasion and aboriginal culture in CHARLIE'S COUNTRY.
