WAKE IN FRIGHT

An Outback schoolteacher's Christmas holidays go awry when he gets severely sidetracked by drinking and gambling. This Australian film received worldwide critical acclaim when it debuted in 1971 but went unreleased on VHS or DVD for decades, becoming Australia's great "lost film." The movie's editor, Anthony Buckley, found its negatives in Pittsburgh, Pa., in 2004, allowing for its restoration and re-release.

At the Charles Theatre Dec. 1, 3, and 6
