“A superb, sad, yet in its own way wonder-filled documentary, which achieves the intimidating task of doing justice to the life and career of this extraordinary artist. ”~Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian

Aroview: A documentary memoir of the late great actor and dancer David Gulpilil, an Aboriginal Australian of the Yolngu people who starred in movies such as WALKABOUT, RABBIT PROOF FENCE and THE TRACKER after his artistic talent was recognised by British director Nicolas Roeg.

Filmed shortly before his death from lung cancer in November 2021, Gulpilil graces us with his charismatic screen presence one final time to tell the story of his life and career, describing the unique experience of "living in two worlds" - from the Arnhem Land bush to the Cannes Film Festival.
