Images + Post By: | July 15, 2009One Comment


While parousing on of our favorite blogs A Silent Flute we stumpled a post about David Gumpilil, an Australian Aborigine, dancer and a movie star. In 1969, Gulpilil’s extraordinary skill as a tribal dancer caught the attention of British filmmaker Nicolas Roeg, who had come to his native Maningrida scouting locations for a forthcoming film. Roeg promptly cast the sixteen year old unknown to play a principal role in his internationally acclaimed motion picture Walkabout, released in 1971. Gulpilil’s on-screen charisma, combined with his exceptional acting and dancing skills, was such that he became an instant national and international celebrity. He travelled to distant lands, mingled with famous people and was presented to heads of state. During these travels to promote the film, he met and was impressed with John Lennon, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Muhammad Ali, and Bruce Lee. More stylish photos, after the jump….

    One thing I want to say is the fact that car insurance cancellation is a dreaded experience and if you are doing the suitable things as a driver you simply will not get one. Some individuals do get the notice that they’ve been officially dumped by the insurance company they then have to fight to get added insurance after the cancellation. Low cost auto insurance rates are usually hard to get from cancellation. Having the main reasons pertaining to auto insurance termination can help people prevent completely losing in one of the most critical privileges accessible. Thanks for the ideas shared via your blog.
