Synopsis

Two children get lost in the Australian Outback and our guided back to civilization by an Aborigine who befriends them.

Description

After a pair of British children are abandoned in the Australian outback, they join up with a young Aborigine who is performing his traditional, coming-of-age rite of passage, the Walkabout. A commentary on pastoral simplicity versus cosmopolitan clutter, this marked Nicolas Roeg's directorial debut. Based on the novel by James Vance Marshall.

Notes

Color by Eastmancolor. Shot on location in the Outback of Australia. Shown at the Cannes Film Festival on May 16, 1971. Received a theatrical rerelease December 1996 thru February 1997. The Home Vision VHS version is the digitally remastered director's cut, including the original theatrical trailer and additional footage omitted from the original U.S. theatrical release. The solo directorial debut for Nicolas Roeg, following his first film, "Performance," which he directed in collaboration with Donald Cammell.
