In the beginning…

Christopher McCandless and The Magic Bus

How does a journey begin?

As we begin our comparative study on Sean Penn’s Into the Wild and Robyn Davidson’s Tracks we explore this idea of journey.

Consider the film text, Into the Wild and imagine asking the young Christopher McCandless:

When was the moment you decided to go out into the world, alone?

What motivated you to start  your journey, your adventure?

Why do you journey alone?

How will you survive this adventure?

What has called you into the wild?
