The Devasting Effect Of Superimposing A New Culture
Over The Old The Plight Of The Aborigines In Australia

David Gulpilil
Two years after David Gulpilil won Best Actor (Un Certain Regard) at the Cannes Film Festival for Charlie's Country, The Australian documentary Another Country from the same suite of projects has been selected to screen as part of Cannes Cinephiles, one of four sidebar sections of the festival along with Critic's Week and Director's Fortnight, in the Cinéma des Antipodes strand programmed by Bernard Bories.

Cannes Cinéphiles is an event organised by Cannes Cinéma and the Festival de Cannes to provide public screenings from the Official Selection, as well as films from the parallel sections.

In Another Country, legendary Australian aboriginal actor David Gulpilil (Walkabout, Storm Boy, Crocodile Dundee, Australia, Rabbit Proof Fence, The Tracker) tells the tale of when his people's thousands-of-years-old way of life was interrupted by a new culture. This documentary film speaks to the havoc caused by superimposing a new culture over an old culture and the consequent clashes with all manner of things, such as time, money, garbage and errant kangaroos.

Director Molly Reynolds said: "The audience reception to Charlie's Country at Cannes was overwhelming to witness, so it's incredibly exciting that the City of Cannes and the Festival together are providing the opportunity for audiences to learn more about the Yolngu people at these free and accessible screenings of Another Country, so very far from Arnhem Land."

Another Country is directed by Molly Reynolds, produced by Rolf de Heer, Peter Djigirr & Molly Reynolds, written by David Gulpilil, Rolf de Heer & Molly Reynolds and made in collaboration with the Yolngu of Ramingining.

Following the 2015 Melbourne International Film Festival world premiere, Another Country has screened at festivals around the country and all over the world and, distributed by ABCG Film, has so far grossed more than $70k at the Australian Box Office.

Among its accolades to date, Another Country was the only Australian documentary to be nominated for a prestigious Asia Pacific Screen Award in 2015, was nominated for a UN Media Peace Award, won the Grand Prix at the 2016 FIFO Pacific International Film Festival where Abderrahmane Sissako (Timbuktu) was head of the jury, and was ranked 4th in The Guardian's 10 Best Australian Films of 2015 (further awards list below). Another Country Rated G and accompanied by an excellent Study Guide, has also been engaging students across Australia.
