100% WOOL

Australia, 1986 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Tony Mahood

The urbane and almost mournful life of a Melbourne busker, Monty, is invaded by his country-cousin Ida. As she learns the rules of the often capricious lifestyle of Monty and his friends, she comes to contribute her earthy approach to the problems of a stifling bureaucracy.
