Video Interview: Mia Wasikowska talks ‘Tracks’

by Phil Wheat

Tracks tells the incredible true story of Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska), a young woman who in 1977 undertook a perilous solo trek across 1,700 miles of stunning Australian outback.

Abandoning city life, Robyn arrives in Alice Springs and declares her ambition to cross the desert to the Indian Ocean to the amusement of the locals. However after months of camping out and working on a camel farm people begin to take her seriously. A chance meeting with National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver) provides her with the necessary financing for her expedition under the condition that he be allowed to photograph parts of her journey for the magazine. With only her dog and four unpredictable camels for company, she embarks on an inspiring and life changing journey of self-discovery.

In this interview for Nerdly, film correspondent James Kleinmann asks Mia Wasikowska (Robyn Davidson) what it was that drew her to Robyn’s story.
