Walkabout description

David (credited as Gumpilil) debuts in Nicolas Roeg’s extraordinary visual poem. The moment this charismatic and handsome 16-year-old strides into view, adorned with the lizards he’s just killed, is breathtaking. In some ways the symbolic burden he has carried since began here: does he represent the essence of Australia or the exotically Other?
