Museum of the Moving Image – Redstone Theater
Dir. Nicolas Roeg. 1971, 100 mins. 35mm. With Jenny Agutter, David Gulpilil, Luc Roeg. “I'd never seen Walkabout before Todd's recommendation, though I'd always loved several of Nicholas Roeg's other movies. Walkabout is a stunner, a cinematic freak-out set in the Australian Outback with three unforgettable performances by very young actors. You can see Roeg's influence on Wonderstruck in the moment when a boy is hit by lightning and the editing and images evoke Roeg's wildness and shock.”—Brian Selznick
