Fantastic Fest 2012 - Wake in Fright

Fantastic Fest 2012 screened a very rare, once-lost, now-restored print of 1971's Wake in Fright, a brutal tale of personal degredation set in the Australian outback. Director Ted Kotcheff sat down with FEARnet to talk about the film, which was set to be incinerated only days before it was found in a warehouse, and it's biggest supporter: Martin Scorcese.

Theatrical Release Date: New York, October 5, 2012 at Film Forum;Los Angeles, October 19, 2012 Landmark NuArt Theatre; Nationally Oct/Nov 2012
