Para los aborígenes australianos, los dieciséis años implican la prueba de fuego para alcanzar la madurez tras convertirse en walkabouts que se buscan la vida con lo que tierra les ofrece. En esta película, dos hermanos ingleses, un niño y una adolescente, se ven abocados a sobrevivir en el desierto antípoda tras sufrir un accidente. En su camino, se encuentran con un walkabout con el que, pese a no entenderse en el lenguaje, establecen una relación de dependencia que contrasta el atávico saber del nativo con la debilidad y crueldad del hombre blanco. Nominada a la Palma de Oro de Cannes, 1971

"The Australian outback, 1922 -- four men relentlessly track a fugitive, an Aboriginal man accused of murder. Nominally in charge of the expedition is the Fanatic (Gary Sweet), calculating and complex. The Follower (Damon Gameau) is new to the frontier, a greenhorn. The Veteran (Grant Page) is along for the ride, placing thoughts before action. But all three whites are dependent on the mysterious figure of the black Tracker (David Gulpilil). When an interrogation of some bush blacks turns into a massacre, paranoia sets in, and the question becomes not will the fugitive be caught, but what is black and what is white and who is leading whom?"--Container

"Nicholas Roeg's mystical masterpiece chronicles the physical, spiritual and emotional journey of a sister and brother abandoned in the harsh Australian outback. Joining an Aborigine boy on his walkabout - a tribal initiation into manhood - these modern children pass from innocence into experience as they are thrust from the comforts of civilization into the savagery of the natural world"
