A general introduction to the Australian seashore and its creatures. The place of compromise, is, in fact, that narrow skirt on every coastline where the lives of sea creatures are spent partly above and partly below the water line. The film uses normal and micro photography.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
