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.

Silver Award, Australian Film Awards 1970
