Director: Gian Carlo Manara
One of Henry Lawson's greatest stories tells of a woman left alone in a two-roomed bush cottage while her husband is away droving—alone with her four children, their dog, and a killer snake under the kitchen floor. In fact, very much alone.
This tender and profoundly evocative film by Gian Carlo Manara was ABC TV's entry in the 1968 Golden Harp Festival. It is a reminder of the still unexploited potential of both the Australian environment and the country's cinematic skill.
