Tracks

Win­ner of 2014 NSW & ACT Gold Award by Aus­tralian Cin­e­matog­ra­phers Soci­ety and 2015 AFCA Award by Aus­tralian Film Crit­ics Association

Tracks (direct­ed by John Cur­ran — 2014) tells the incred­i­ble true sto­ry of Robyn David­son, a young woman who in 1977 under­took a per­ilous solo trek across 1,700 miles of stun­ning Aus­tralian out­back. Aban­don­ing city life, Robyn arrives in the town of Alice Springs and declares to the amused locals her ambi­tion to trav­el to the icon­ic Ayers Rock and across West­ern Aus­tralia to the ocean. How­ev­er, after months of camp­ing out and work­ing on a camel farm (to learn to man­age and obtain the ani­mals nec­es­sary for her jour­ney), peo­ple begin to take her seri­ous­ly. A chance meet­ing with Nation­al Geo­graph­ic pho­tog­ra­ph­er Rick Smolan pro­vides her with the nec­es­sary financ­ing for her expe­di­tion under the con­di­tion that he be allowed to pho­to­graph part of her jour­ney for the mag­a­zine. With only her dog and four unpre­dictable camels for com­pa­ny, she embarks on an inspir­ing and life-chang­ing jour­ney of self-discovery.
