‘In Desert and Wilderness’ : Polish Films in Howick
Jan 27 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

‘In Desert and Wilderness’ dir. Gavin Hood (2010).

Stas (14) and Nel (8) are thrilled to be with their fathers in exotic Egypt. The palm trees and beaches offer a welcome change from the chills of Europe and the children are fascinated by the different languages and religions of North Africa. During the night, Stas and Nel are kidnapped by Egyptian rebels. As the children of Suez Canal engineers, they are valuable hostages, but they soon escape with the help of two young Africans. While their fathers organize rescue parties, the children’s adventure takes them across the beautiful, vast desert.

This popular feature film with beautiful cinematography is set in 1890 and based on the Nobel prize-winning novel for youth ‘W pustyni i w puszczy’, written in 1912 by Henryk Sienkiewicz.

School holiday family entertainment.
