Sands of the Kalahari (UK, 1965)

March 4, 2016 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM


UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hugh M. Hefner Classic American Film Program present “Sound and Fury: The Films of Cy Endfield.”

Sands of the Kalahari (UK, 1965)
Directed by Cy Endfield

A plane crash in the South African desert exposes its survivors to intensive hardship and the need to organize for survival. In true Cy Endfield style, this is expressed through the tension between savagery and civilized cooperation, as members of the group oscillate between the two extremes, eerily mirrored by the allegorical presence of an always-nearby pack of wild baboons.

Screenwriter: Cy Endfield. Cinematographer: Erwin Hiller. Editor: John Jympson. Composer: John Dankworth. With: Stuart Whitman, Stanley Baker, Susannah York, Harry Andrews, Theodore Bikel.
