“This is my story of my story”

Session Times



Ever since his debut in Nicolas Roeg’s Walkabout (1971), David Gulpilil has been a mesmerising, electrifying presence on Australian screens. An actor, dancer and an elder in the Marwuwyu community, David Gulpilil’s career has spanned over 40 years, and includes unforgettable performances in films such as as Storm Boy (1976), Mad Dog Morgan (1976), The Tracker (2002), Ten Canoes (2006) and Charlie’s Country (2013), which won him the Best Actor award at Cannes. Grappling with cancer since his diagnosis in 2017, Gulpilil shares his story with remarkable openness and generosity in this superb documentary from director Molly Reynolds (Another Country).

Why You Should See This Film

Combining a wealth of archival materials, film clips, along with its fascinating central interview with Gulpilil, My Name Is Gulpilil provides an incredibly moving portrait of the actor. His anecdotes about meeting everyone from the Queen to John Lennon, Bob Marley and Dennis Hopper have to be heard to be believed, and his mischievous spirit and cheeky sense of humour even as he considers his own mortality is beautiful and touching to behold.


We’re excited to welcome you to our cinema, and have put a number of protocols in place to ensure your safety.

  • Limited seats are available to each session to allow for social distancing. Our lovely staff will seat you at the beginning of your session so please be on time and ready to show your ticket on your phone or printed out (phone preferred) so that we can admit you without contact.
  • Masks are mandatory, but may be slipped off while consuming food or drink.
  • Cinema doors will open 10 minutes before your advertised session time so that you can be seated and use that time to get comfortable, sanitised and make a trip to the bar if you’d like (our cocktails are very good!).
  • Please get in touch via hello@ourgoldenage.com.au if you have any questions or issues.
