Ted Kotcheff, Wake in Fright



Literally saved from destruction at the last minute, Ted Kotcheff’s 1970 Australian-made Wake in Fright was a lost film until tins marked for the incinerator were discovered in Pittsburgh. The restored film, presented by Martin Scorsese, confirms its standing as one of the seminal works in New Australian Cinema, a lacerating look at alienation and male bonding in the Outback with Gary Bond and Donald Pleasance. Kotcheff tells hair-raising tales of its creation, including the controversial climactic kangaroo hunt.
