Watch: First Trailer for ‘Tracks’ – A movie based on Robyn Davidson’s memoir

By admin | 3 years ago

Transmission Films has has brought online the first full trailer for Australian indie film, Tracks. Directed by John Curran (The Painted Veil), Tracks is based on the best-selling memoir by 27-year-old real-life adventurer Robyn Davidson who hiked alone across almost 1700 miles of desert through the Australian Outback.

Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre, Stoker) plays Robyn Davidson in the film co-starring Girl’s Adam Driver. Tracks premiered at the Telluride, Toronto and Venice Film Festivals, and frankly talking, I’m realy impressed by the incredible performance from Wasikowska who seen fully immersed in her role.


Take a look at the first trailer and yes, it uses M83’s “Outro”, as did Cloud Atlas.

Tracks tells the inspirational true story of a naturalist and adventurer, Robyn Davidson who traversed 2,700 km from Alice Springs to Uluru and on to the Indian Ocean through the Australian desert in 1978. Robyn was accompanied only by her loyal dog and three unpredictable camels for nine months, setting against one of the wildest and most breathtaking solo treks on the planet.

Pushing Robyn to her physical and emotional limits, this unprecedented journey makes us realize that the impossible is within reach of us all.

Wasikowska, 24, too was inspired by Davidson’s courage and determination. “Any time I would get cranky (during filming), I would try to put things in perspective by imagining doing what Robyn did. I found that quite helpful,” she said at the Venice Film Festival in September.

Tracks is scheduled to hit Aussie screens on March 6, 2014, but no US date has been set.
