Lord of the Flies (1963) 16mm/B&W | Underground Film Night: Obscure Super 8 & 16mm Movies | Berkeley
Peter Brooks’ big-screen adaptation of William Golding’s classic Lord of the Flies adheres closely to the source material.
After a plane accident, 30 school-age boys find themselves stranded on an island. The boys decide that the disciplined Ralph (James Aubrey) will be their leader. Jack (Tom Chapin) heads up a group who will hunt and butcher the local population of pigs for food. Also on the island is the mature, intelligent Piggy (Hugh Edwards). Eventually Ralph and Jack become the center of a war for leadership on the island.
