About the Event
A young school teacher marooned in the outback descends into a frenzied spiral of drunken madness in the dark heart of white Australia. Know as the countries “great lost film,” Wake in Fright was reviled, forgotten and almost destroyed forever before its metric resurrection in 2009. Nightmarish, brutally real, and infinitely fascinating, this is a film that goes for broke and says to hell with the consequences.
**TW - this film contains documentary footage of a real kangaroo hunt that can be disturbing to some viewers.
