Australia, 1973

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

This film looks at the way various young film makers in Australia are adapting film to communicate their ideas. A film about films, it mirrors the distinctive style of student films, cutting quickly, moving rapidly over a wide range of activities and places, contrasting different approaches to film study. Thirteen schools from five States were selected as being representative of filmmaking in Australian schools.
