The Line

Australia, 1970 (MIFF 1971, Australian Films)

Director: Christopher McGill

A train makes its first crossing on the new standard gauge Indian Pacific Line, linking Sydney with Perth. Conventional narration is replaced by a montage of natural sound and folk music, and the viewer is invited to experience for himself the crossing of the lonely continent of Australia.
