Timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of both Wake in Fright (Kotcheff, 1971) and Walkabout (Roeg, 1971) appearing in London cinemas on the same weekend, this two-day online conference seeks to explore the range of international and transnational perspectives that helped shape the Australian New Wave of the 1970s and 80s.
