Wake in Fright restoration trailer

This short trailer effectively shows the dramatic improvement in sharpness and colour between the 2009 restoration of Wake In Fright by AtLab and the original negative from 1971.

The improvements are particularly clear when the screen is split in half, and you can compare the before and after versions side by side.

A selection of scenes in a range of interior and exterior locations demonstrates that the improvements are visible throughout the film.

The trailer is backed by an excerpt of John Scott's original music composed for Wake in Fright, though the jaunty nature of the theme is not always a good fit for some of the scenes cut for this trailer.
