Walkabout

Monday 14th January

1971 UK, directed by Nicolas Roeg, 100 minutes

Director Nicolas Roeg died recently and we felt that a tribute to him was in order. His Don’t Look Now is a brilliant and very well known film but we’ve selected his stunning solo directorial debut to commemorate him. A shocking event leads to a ‘proper’ English teenager and her 7-year-old brother (Jenny Agutter and Lucien Roeg) finding themselves lost in the Australian desert. They come across a young Aboriginal boy who is on ‘walkabout’. A unique study of cultural clash and awakening sexuality beautifully filmed in Roeg’s enigmatic style. Affecting and memorable.
