Description

Alongside Mad Max and Walkabout, Wake In Fright is widely acknowledged as one of the seminal films in the development of modern Australian cinema. It tells the nightmarish story of a schoolteacher’s (Gary Bond) descent into personal demoralization at the hands of drunken, deranged derelicts while stranded in a small town in outback Australia. Believed to be lost for decades and virtually unseen in America until now, Ted Kotcheff's (First Blood) film returns fully-restored in what the New York Observer says, “may be the greatest Australian film ever made.” Donald Pleasence and Jack Thompson co-star. (1971, 114 min, DCP)
