Charlie's Country description

De Heer visited David in Berrimah jail and persuaded him to make this semi-autobiographical film, which won him Best Actor for Cannes Film Festival’s Un Certain Regard category. His portrait of Charlie, the impoverished 60-year-old who once danced for the Queen, is authentic, heartbreaking and suffused with dignity and his indomitable spirit.
