FilmSoc Week 9: WALKABOUT
3 May, 2016
RC Mill Lecture Room 209
Dir. Nicholas Roeg, 1971, Australia/UK
The film that made David Gulpilil the icon he remains today, Walkabout follows two young siblings stranded in the Australian Outback. They meet an Indigenous boy (played by Gulpilil) on walkabout who saves their lives and shows them how to survive.
This beautifully shot film, the second by Nicolas Roeg, and has become one of the most iconic Australian films (despite its British director) and one of the more progressive and realistic representations of the Australian outback. It's not one you want to miss.
Find us on Tuesday in RC Mills Lecture Room 209. We'll have pizza from 5pm and the screening will start at about 5:15pm. We'll be heading to the Forest Lodge Hotel afterwards for post-film drinks and discussion.
