1964, 28 Minutes

A humorous look at how to make an in-depth film about Australia.

It's 1962 and a scriptwriter and a director argue their approaches to the problem of a comprehensive documentary about Australia: one favours an experimental style, the other a more conventional approach.

Wittily observed excerpts from both proposed films indicate the faults of each, and the problems of making such a film are portrayed with considerable humour.
