Film description

In Tracks, the character played byMia Wasikowska has to battle the elements, and the stakes are high. She believes that finding meaning in her life depends on her ability to cross a 2700 km section of desert in western Australia. Her only companions are her loyal dog and a pack of camels. Thanks to them and the immense, monotonous landscape, she becomes aware of what loneliness really is and learns answers to the question of the place of humans in a world so well organized by nature. The director is mainly interested in individuals’ confrontation with their own weaknesses and their lack of faith in their own possibilities. Full of unusual experiences, the journey allows the protagonist to discover both the beauty and the threat of her stunning natural surroundings (beautifully captured by Mandy Walker). The most valuable part of the trip, however, is something else: getting to know herself. John Curran’s intimate film is a tribute to perseverance and courage.
