Living in a remote Aboriginal community in Australia, Charlie is a warrior past his prime. As the government increases its stranglehold over the community’s traditional way of life, Charlie feels lost between two cultures. His modern life offers him a way to survive but, ultimately, feeling helpless. Finally fed up when his gun, spear and his best friend’s jeep are confiscated, Charlie heads into the wild on his own, to live the old way.
CHARLIE’S COUNTRY director Rolf de Heer will participate in Q&A’s after the 7:30 PM screenings at the Music Hall on Friday and Saturday, June 12 and 13. Chris Schwartz, manager of the AFI Conservatory, will serve as moderator.
