A companion piece to Rolf de Heer's Cannes-winning Charlie's Country.
With evocative and experientially cinematic visuals and sound, Still Our Country – Reflections on a Culture documents the swiftly morphing lives of the Yolngu people of Ramingining in the Northern Territory. The film is built on fragments and parts presenting a carnival of contemporary ways, the sum of which makes for a bold declaration of identity and a hopeful promise of a future.
Directed by Molly Reynolds and produced by her Twelve Canoes co-director Rolf de Heer (The Tracker, MIFF 2002; The Old Man Who Read Love Stories, MIFF 2001), Still Our Country – Reflections on a Culture is part of a cross-platform suite of projects, along with associated feature Charlie's Country (for which David Gulpilil won the Best Actor award in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes), and the historical/political documentary Another Country, as told by Gulpilil.
Molly Reynolds and Rolf de Heer are festival guests.
