The critically-acclaimed documentary GURRUMUL, provides insight into the life and legacy of one of Australia’s greatest musicians.

With a voice that captured the heart of millions across the world, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu was an enigmatic talent. Blind from birth, the proud Yolngu man spoke through his music. He found purpose and meaning through songs inspired by his community and country in North East Arnhem Land.

The documentary, GURRUMUL, carries the legacy of this celebrated and important voice, and offers a rare insight into the life of the shy musician beyond the stage and the spotlight. We see a man as he traverses two “different worlds”. “One world is Balanda, the other world is Yolngu,” as Gurrumul describes it.

Filmed over the course of ten years, the documentary feature by Paul Williams gives us a window into the rich and complex Yolngu culture and ceremonial life, a world that informed the singer’s music and voice. As Gurrumul lives an exciting life as a successful musician, performing for people like Barack Obama and even Queen Elizabeth II, he also experiences intense homesickness and the need to continue to learn and immerse himself in his family and traditional life.
