Ancestral Modern inspired film - “Walkabout”

February 1, 7:00 PM to 8:45 PM | Chazen Auditorium


Ancestral Modern inspired film - Walkabout

Australia, 1971, 35mm, 95 min.
Directed by Nicolas Roeg
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 (The Tracker’s David Gulpilil) 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.

Held in conjunction with Ancestral Modern: Australian Aboriginal Art from the Kaplan & Levi Collection
