“After a decades-long search for the original negatives it’s been restored by the NFSA in partnership with The Wake in Fright Trust and Atlab/Deluxe Australia, and acclaimed all over again at the recent Cannes 2009 Classics program and Sydney Film Festival. Arc Cinema gives you the first and best chance to see the most anticipated Australian classic re-release in many years.”

To view the calendar visit their website.

Tickets: $10 / $8 concession / $5 Thursday matinée (except where indicated}. ‘Max’ pass: 10 tickets $70

Admission is 18+ except where classification is shown. Doors open for Arc’s pre-show 30 minutes before screening. McCoy Cct, ACTON

I would like to warn you that Wake in Fright contains scenes of kangaroos being killed. I believe it was taken from footage of a kangaroo cull, Ted has explicitly denied any animals being harmed for his movie. This particular scene was quite graphic.

National Gallery are advertising (via Avantcard) a free public screening of Samson and Delilah as part of NAIDOC Week – Thursday 9 July at 6.00 pm. No bookings. It’s sure to be oversubscribed, so turn up early!

No animals were harmed for the film.

Ted Kotcheff did however get permission to film an authorised, professional roo cull (by late 60′s standards), and edited it in to make it appar that Gary Bond et al were involved – as you will be able to tell when you watch this brilliant film!

Now you know.

He also changed the ending of Rambo from the book… but that’s another story.
