Contemporary filmmakers described Good Afternoon as "A multiple screen, colour recreation of the incredible eight-day Aquarius Arts Festival held in Canberra, 1971. A radical new departure in documentary filmmaking; two screens bursting with pulsating images overpowering the mind as 10,000 young people and performers do their own thing amidst the antiseptic environment that is our capital city. Australia's counter-culture at work and play. An important social document." (Filmmakers Co-operatives Catalogue of Independent Film 1975/6)
