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 incredibly uplifting, a rare glimpse into a culturally rich, family-strong, thriving community few of us will ever witness first-hand."
"Beautiful, raw, intimate...a remarkable film."
The Weekend West
"A film that champions racial harmony and cultural diversity.. a moving musical celebration."
The Sunday Times
"A close-up of the celebrated Indigenous Australian singer and multi-instrumentalist, blind since birth, who died just three days after signing off on this film."
The Hollywood Reporter
"Without quite saying it, the film makes us feel how strong that culture is on Elcho Island, and how difficult it was for Gurrumul to leave it. We meet his parents and relatives and get some idea of the closeness of bonds within his two different clans. Other films have tried to tell us about such things in Aboriginal culture. This one just tries to show it and that's a kind of breakthrough. I felt the film in my bones, more than my brain. It's also rare that a film respects the music, as much as the story. The sequences of Gurrumul working in studio with Hohnen and Veltheim, basing songs on traditional themes and totems, are simply sublime. They make the singer's death at 46 seem that much more tragic. One cannot watch this film and not ask the question: what might he have accomplished with better access to health care?" - 4.5 Stars
