David Gulpilil is one of Australia's great actors. Here is an extract from his biography written by Derek Rielly.

The figure of David Gulpilil haunts and ignites the Australian cinema. We remember him in his first role as a young dancer making the infinite visible in Walkabout. He allows us to see his patient inner fire and fury in Tracker. We cannot possibly forget his face as, imprisoned, he is shaved to the skull in Charlie's Country, kin to Lear but rising again from his own depths.
