Charlie's Country

Charlie's Country

Directed by Rolf de Heer

Living in a remote Aboriginal community in northern Australia, Charlie is a warrior past his prime. As the government increases its stranglehold over the community’s traditional way of life, Charlie becomes lost between two cultures. Finally fed up, Charlie heads into the wild on his own to live the old way. However, Charlie hasn’t reckoned on where he might end up, nor on how much life has changed since the old ways.

With no way to live a traditional lifestyle in his Aboriginal community, aging Charlie struggles to make his own way in life.
