A screening at Arktisen Upeeta XXI: THE WORLD IS BURNING film festival.
“Never in the cinema’s history has a colour camera drawn such scenes of fantastic beauty and barbarity, almost psychedelic in its intensity.” (Alexander Walker, London Evening Standard)
A deranged man takes his teenage daughter and 6-year-old son into the Australian outback and attempts to shoot them. When he fails, the two city-bred children must contend with the harsh wilderness alone. They are saved by a chance encounter with an Aborigine boy, who shows them how to survive, and in the process underscores the disharmony between nature and modern life.
The visually stunning classic of Nicolas Roeg is spoken in English and partly in aboriginal language and subtitled in Finnish.
