In Harbour

Australia, 1953 (MIFF 1954, Australiana)

Director: Joan Bounty

This is a film of great beauty. It makes no startling discoveries, it tells no facts. But here, skilfully blended with deep understanding and exquisitely photographed, are a series of small incidents in the life of the people of a great city. This, a film without words, speaks in a language which will be understood by ordinary people the world over.
