A portrait of one of Australia’s most celebrated and important voices.

Celebrated by audiences at home and abroad, indigenous artist Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu was one of the most important and acclaimed voices to ever come out of Australia. Blind from birth, he found purpose and meaning through songs and music inspired by his community and country on Elcho Island in far North East Arnhem Land. Living a traditional Yolngu life, his breakthrough album ‘Gurrumul’ brought him to a crossroads as audiences and artists around the world began to embrace his music.

GURRUMUL is a portrait of an artist on the brink of global reverence, and the struggles he and those closest to him faced in balancing that which mattered most to him and keeping the show on the road.

With his 2008 self-titled album, Yolngu man Gurrumul found a mass audience for his soaring music, which is steeped in the rich music and language of Elcho Island, Arnhem Land. Filmed over many years and completed just prior to Gurrumul’s passing in July 2017, Gurrumul is a beautiful celebration of his life and career.(English, Gumatj and Gälpu with some English subtitles)
