John Curran, Director, Tracks.
Festival Section: Official Competition.TRACKS is a beautifully shot, dramatic story set in the Australian outback, where one very determined young lady, Robyn Davidson sets off from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean trekking over 2700km on foot with just her pet pooch and 4 camels for company. No mean feat by anyone’s standards and a breathtaking, extraordinary adventure based on a true story from the seventies.
FRED caught up with director John Curran to chat about working with animals, the incredible talents of Mia Wasikowska and the challenges of shooting in such harsh conditions.
