“The Aborigne and the girl 30,000 years apart…together”
A masterpiece of innocence and culture clash and filmed entirely in the Australian wilderness and considered a cult favourite for years, Nicolas Roeg’s 1971 film is about two anonymous British children played by Jenny Agutter and Luc Roeg who are rescued in the Australian outback by a young Aboriginal man played by David Gulpilil. Tom Chantrell’s artwork for the 1971 British quad (as offered here) perfectly conveys the loneliness and abandonment of the children stranded in the depths of the outback with his use of ‘hot’ colours exceptional; you can feel the heat emanating from the imagery. It’s a real pleasure to offer one in such fine high grade unrestored condition. Photographs really can’t convey just how vibrant and bright the colours are. This is a hard poster to find and represents a fantastic piece of original cinema memorabilia from a truly talented British Director.
Trivia: One of two Australian-shot films to participate in competition at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival, the other being Wake in Fright (1971).…more detail
