Another Country considers, from the inside, the ramifications of one culture being dominated by another. Australia's finest indigenous actor David Gulpilil tells the tale of his community of Ramingining, a story of what happened when his people's way of life was interrupted by ours.

This collaboration between Gulpilil, Molly Reynolds and Rolf de Heer follows in the wake of Charlie's Country (ADL Film Fest 2013) and speaks to the havoc caused by the superimposition of a new culture over an old and the consequent problems in diverse areas of daily life, such as time, money, garbage and errant kangaroos. With both simplicity and clarity, Gulpilil gives us first hand insight on the clashes, confusions and chaos between cultures. At the beginning of last century the Australian Government, along with entrepreneurs, opportunists and do-gooders, made a concerted effort to gain control of the lands of the Yolngu people across northern Arnhem Land, along the central part of northern Australia.

While the long succession of would-be cattle barons, missionaries and Government agents failed to dispossess the Yolngu of their lands, the introduction of their new ways and different laws succeeded in eroding the heart of a complex culture that was once strong, defiant and self-sufficient.
