About WAKE IN FRIGHT

WAKE IN FRIGHT
Rated M

Director: Ted Kotcheff
Australia (1971)

After finishing up the school term in a remote outback town, teacher John Grant (Gary Bond) looks forward to spending his holiday with his girlfriend in Sydney. But John gets waylaid in a mining town where a gambling spree leaves him completely broke. He quickly falls in with the hard-drinking locals, who constantly ply him with alcohol and force him to participate in a gruesome kangaroo hunt. Disgusted, John tries to hitchhike out of town and, when that fails, begins to contemplate suicide. Also stars Chips Rafferty, Donald Pleasence and Jack Thompson.

Filmed on location in Broken Hill and Sydney, Wake in Fright is an Australian/US co-production and alongside Walkabout, is one of two Australian films that were nominated for the Grand Prix du Festival at the 24th Cannes Film Festival.

By the 1990s Wake in Fright had developed a cult reputation as Australia’s great ‘lost film’ because its master negative had gone missing. After the original film and sound elements were rescued by editor Anthony Buckley in 2004 the film was digitally remastered and given a 2009 re-release at Cannes and in Australian theatres to widespread acclaim.

The Bangalow Film Festival is proud to present the restored version of Wake in Fright and to celebrate the film’s 50th anniversary.
