Brittish boy lost, wanders desert

I have vague memories of a great movie that K,F and O showed. A Brittish boy searches frantically for his parents in a chaotic African? Indian? city. Then he wanders the desert. I think he meets a man who has crashed his airplane.
Can't remember much more.
I'm sure someone will remember much more and help me out!
Thanks,
Lisa

Hi Lisa,

Did you check the film listing on my main CCFF page? Every film ever shown on the Festival is described there.

I don't think any film fitting this description was broadcast on the Festival. A film that *might* fit that description is "Sammy Going South" (aka "A Boy 10 Feet Tall"):

The bit about the airplane reminded of a Soviet film called "The Last Inch", though it's unlikely that it is the one you remember:

Re: Brittish boy lost, wanders desert

You might be thinking of the South African film "Dirkie"?

It is available to watch on YouTube.
