Self-dual Yang-Mills and gravity are truncations of the full respective theories that keep only a subset of interactions. These self-dual theories are "integrable" and have remarkable properties, which will be summarised. I will also describe a new formulation of self-dual gravity. The talk is based on 1610.01457  and 2106.01397.
