Filmed in the most dangerous wastelands, the Kalahari Desert, "Lost in the Desert" is a story of suspense, conflict and incredible human courage as an 8-year-old boy and his dog are left to face this vast wasteland alone after an airplane crash, while an army of men and machines penetrate the desert searching for them. The film is based on true events and is sure to hold you spellbound! Written by
Apart from the practical difficulties associated with filming a movie in the desert, what made Dirkie even more of a feat was that it was filmed twice, once in Afrikaans and once in English. See more »
i remember seeing this movie as a young boy more than 30 years ago, it was part of a double bill , i don't recall what the main feature was and i think that is testament to just how memorable this movie is. the images of the young boy believing he has eaten his dog , and his father dropping thousands of leaflets to try and help him, have stayed in my mind for all this time.there was also a scene where he crossed from one desert to another , made visible by the different coloured sand, also the ostrich egg scene which i vividly remember.
i really can't believe that so many people were moved by this film in the same way that i was . it amazes me that this film has never shown up on British television , or been released on video/DVD.
