Capital Celluloid 2023 — Day 37: Mon Feb 6

Walkabout (Roeg, 1971): Cine Lumiere, 6.30pm

This screening pays tribute to director Nicolas Roeg and will be followed by a Q&A with actors Jenny Agutter & Luc Roeg moderated by writer Tony Rayns.

Time Out review:
Nicolas Roeg's second film (made after the massively delayed Performance) is at first sight uncharacteristic: the story of two posh English kids abandoned in the Australian outback and left to fend for themselves when their father commits suicide. In fact, the shimmering light and colour, the conflict of cultures, and the emergence of semi-mystic sexual forces in the desert landscape make this as Roeg-ian a film as The Man Who Fell to Earth or Bad Timing.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
