In Australia, where there is one vehicle for every three people, road accidents have reached epidemic proportions with 4,000 people dying each year. The trauma of the accidents themselves is only eclipsed by the trauma of the chain of events that follow. Highly graphic scenes of car accidents in this film make viewing unsuitable for sensitive people, and preview is strongly recommended
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 As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions.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.
