Get Reel at the McNay: Walkabout

When: Thu., Nov. 17, 7 p.m. 2016

Get Reel at the McNay presents the 1971 film "Walkabout." When a young sister and brother are abandoned in the notoriously unforgiving environs of Australia’s outback, their apparent salvation comes in the form of an aboriginal boy who is embarking upon his “walkabout,” a rite of passage in which young men must brave the wilderness alone in order to earn their manhood. Director Nicolas Roeg’s enthralling visuals and harrowing story keep viewers on the edges of their seats until the film’s final moments.
