Wake in Fright + Post-screening Discussion

A seminal work in the development of modern Australian cinema. Wake in Fright tells the nightmarish story of a schoolteacher’s descent into personal demoralization at the hands of drunken, deranged derelicts while stranded in a small town in outback Australia. A work long admired by Nick Cave, John Hillcoat and Martin Scorsese, it’s a film once seen, never forgotten.
