Film Australia's Australia: Exploring Futures


Please Select Your Pricing Category

1989, 60 Minutes

In Exploring Futures, archival footage is used as a stimulus to consider alternatives for the future. Filmmakers’ interpretations of the past - of Australian characteristics, conditions, events and values - act as a starting point.

The program raises many questions.
How might the future compare with the past and present?
Is all change necessarily progress?
To what extent can we shape the future and what forces are creating change?
What range of choices are open to individuals, groups and governments?
And what kind of future would you prefer?

The program is divided into five themes: The Past, Present, Future; Planning Futures; Dreamers and Visionaries; Guesswork and The Long Term View.
