Perth International Arts Festival says
Join us to celebrate the work of two of the most vital filmmakers in Australia in a world-first retrospective. Film lovers will revel in this chance to discover or revisit these extraordinary films and to hear the makers discuss their work. All sessions will be introduced by Rolf de Heer and/or Molly Reynolds.

Molly Reynolds' documentary on Ramingining is an expressive investigation of an Australian community. Using a wry, sometimes bracingly ironic commentary by David Gulpilil, Another Country asks "what happened to my culture, when it was interrupted by your culture?". Ramingining is the centre of a Yolngu community of around 1500 people at the edge of the Arafura swamp, the location of Ten Canoes, and much of Charlie's County was shot there. Another Country explains how Ramingining works and how it does not work; and how the traditional lives of Yolngu people are altered by capitalism and state intervention. This latter part of Reynolds and de Heer's increasingly rich ‘Country’ suite of films is a key work in contemporary Australian cinema.
