UW Cinematheque at the Chazen - Gulpilil x 2
Walkabout | Australia | 1971 | 35mm | 95 min. Director: Nicolas Roeg
Thursday, February 1, 2018
Cast: Jenny Agutter, David Gulpilil, Lucien John When a white teenage girl and her younger brother find themselves lost in the Australian outback, a young Aborigine appears and offers them aid. Roeg’s first solo outing as a director casts a hypnotic spell over its audience as it explores resonant themes of nature vs. civilization, and the disorienting, but ultimately beneficial, intersection of two vastly different cultures.
