Walkabout: Arthouse 101: International New Wave

Dare to traverse the outback in Nicolas Roeg's 1971 survivalist adventure, Walkabout, as part of our Arthouse 101: International New Wave series.

A white geologist takes his teenage daughter and 6-year-old son into the Australian outback under the guise of having a picnic in the area, when he ultimately plans to shoot them. After failing, the two children become lost in the wild, forced to depend on each other. When they are saved and guided by an Aborigine boy, the unforgiving lack of harmony between nature and modern life begins to reveal itself.

One of the first films of the Australian New Wave, Walkabout is a dreamlike odyssey of humanity's entwining with wilderness.

The Frida Cinema's Art House 101: International New Wave series has been made possible with generous support from the City of Santa Ana.
