The Screen Guide

Self-taught from the age of 10, Sammy Butcher is renowned as the best guitar player in Central Australia. In the late 1970s, Sammy formed the Warumpi Band with George Rrurrambu and Neil Murray. After years of touring and recording, Sammy now lives in Papunya, 250 km west of Alice Springs. This documentary focuses on his work today within the community and a heartrending journey to Sammy's homeland, Pikilyi, for the first time.
