This documentary is one of a series put together by the British Film Institute which is called , detailing the history of moviemaking around the world. This one was put together by director George Miller (George Miller) and operates under the premise that filmmaking is for the modern Australian what the ancient storyline songs were for the tribal Aborigines. While the premise is not convincingly developed, the fascinating history of Australian filmmaking is shown, with appropriate clips from the films under discussion. Purists were reportedly distressed that some film clips included were not "letterboxed," but otherwise found this documentary to be both informative and interesting. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
