“Walkabout" (1971, Australia)
A young sister and brother are abandoned in the harsh Australian outback and must learn to cope in the natural world, without their usual comforts. Along the way, they meet a young aborigine on his "walkabout", a rite of passage in which adolescent boys are initiated into manhood by journeying into the wilderness alone. Jeannette Ludwig, Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, will introduce the film and lead a discussion following the screening.
