A DOCUMENTAR­Y about the life of actor David Gulpilil will premiere in Perth with a Q&A screening at Luna Leedervill­e on Tuesday.

My Name is Gulpilil looks back over his 50-year screen career that includes the two highest-grossing Australian films of all time, Crocodile Dundee and Australia, as well as his unforgetta­ble performanc­es in the likes of Walkabout, Storm Boy and Rabbit Proof Fence.

Now terminally ill, Gulpilil holds the camera figurative­ly in the palm of his hand as he talks about what it is like to stare down death and what it was to live a life with a mix of traditiona­l Aboriginal ways and modern Hollywood excess, and everything in between.

“When I embarked upon this film, I didn’t know where it would take us,” My Name is Gulpilil director Molly Reynolds said.

Doors open at 6pm for a 6.30pm start with Welcome to Country with John McGuire and a Q&A with Molly Reynolds hosted by Kylie Bracknell after the screening.
