Following its successful Limited Edition release, the seminal classic and one of the first Australian New Wave films, Walkabout, from legendary director Nicolas Roeg (The Man Who Fell to Earth, Don't Look Now), gets a Standard Edition Blu-ray release from Second Sight Films.

This coming-of-age story of survival, transcends cultural differences and stars lauded actor Jenny Agutter (Call the Midwife). This internationally renowned, cult favourite is loved by the audiences and critics alike, and now Second Sight Films present Walkabout: Standard Edition Blu-ray available on 8th August 2022.

Following the suicide of their father, Mary (Agutter) and her younger brother Peter (Luc Roeg) are left stranded in the blistering heat of the vast Australian outback. Facing exhaustion and starvation, their salvation comes when they cross paths with an Aboriginal boy (David Gulpilil - The Leftovers, Cargo) on 'walkabout', a ritual in which he must leave his home and learn to survive off the land. He teaches them how to survive in the wilderness, but a clash of cultures leads to terrible and tragic consequences...

The film comes with a host of special features, including a new audio commentary with child star Luc Roeg, now an established producer on projects like We Need to Talk about Kevin, and writer and film critic David Thomson. Also included are new interviews with Luc Roeg, Jenny Agutter and producer Si Litvinoff (Clockwork Orange, The Man Who Fell to Earth).

There's also a great interview with renowned director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later), who recounts his love of Nicolas Roeg and his films, while the late Roeg himself speaks in an archive introduction, and a 2011 BFI Q&A alongside his son and Agutter.
