Wake In Fright Dvd
Sweat, Dust and Beer... There's Nothing Else Out Here Mate!
Awe-inspiring, brutal and stunning, Wake in Fright is the story of John Grant, a bonded teacher who arrives in the rough outback mining town of Bundanyabba planning to stay overnight before catching the plane to Sydney. But his one night stretches to five and he plunges headlong toward his own destruction. When the alcohol-induced mist lifts, the educated John Grant is no more. Instead there is a self-loathing man in a desolate wasteland, dirty, red-eyed, sitting against a tree and looking at a rifle with one bullet left...
Believed lost for many years, Wake in Fright has been painstakingly restored by Australia?s National Film and Sound Archive and AtLab Deluxe, and is presented in its original uncompromising form.
