Living Room

Australia, 1988 (MIFF 1988, Documentary)

Director: David Caesar

Why do people live where they do? Do they have a choice in the way they live? What does 'home' mean? Living Room is not about the politics of housing, hut reveals unique cultural aspects.

David Caesar continues on from last year's award winning Shoppingtown, taking Jean Rouch to Sydney's western suburbs.
