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 also screening on Sunday April 29 at 3:00pm at TIFF Bell Lightbox 2 and Saturday May 5 at 6:15pm at Scotiabank Cinema 13.
Director Paul Williams and Producer Shannon Swan will be in attendance for a Q&A at the April 28 and April 29 screenings.
