After Cook...

Australia, 1969 (MIFF 1971, Australian Films)

Director: Donald Murray

Australia: the surfie beach bum, the country school teacher, the suburban home-owner, the drover and the shearer. The Australians young and old, Aussie born or recently arrived, are seen at their sport, their gambling, their business and their pleasure.
